Ilhan Koman was one of the innovative sculptors of the 20th century [9, 10]. He frequently used mathematical concepts in creating his sculptures and discovered a wide variety of sculptural forms that can be of interest for the art+math community. In this paper, we focus on developable sculptural forms he invented approximately 25 years ago, during a period that covers the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
