algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Originally inspired by Nervous's Seed Lamp
The inside is actually a totally separate bit of design to the outer skin. As the offset of the mesh was self-intersecting everywhere. So instead I used Millipede (isosurface) to get the same undulations, but ignore the complex 'folds', you can see the difference in cross section thickness. I then tessellated it with the inverse pattern of the outer surface.
To make it a single 3d printable mesh, i just deleted a single face on inner and outer skin, then lofted the naked edges. (creating a tiny hole through the model). Therefore creating a single mesh that folds in on itself, not sure if there is a better way of defining the space between two meshes as the solid area...

Special thanks to Laurent Delrieu for his interesting offset mesh method that i based my approach on.
