Looking for the name of this trick or a manufacturer.

In short, a 4 block cube is displayed in a "Jacobs ladder" fashion. 2 stars are produced, 2 cubes are made... and it ends with the original cube.

Here's a video a customer sent me:

It should be pointed out that this is a puzzle, not a trick. It's not longer made, but if you're up to it, there is a set of instructions out there telling you how to construct an origami version.
