Abstract
We present a comparatively simple way to realize multi-layered, rigidly foldable structures by face-to-face joining of kinematically congruent, offset tessellations. A number of relevant tessellation types can be assembled efficiently by joining coplanar faces. The resulting structures preserve the characteristic kinematics of the constituting layers, but exhibit different mechanical and other properties when compared to single-layer tessellations. Different geometric setups are presented, and the kinematic and mechanical as well as other properties of the resulting metamaterials will be discussed.
