At the time, I was reading a publication concerning Paul Klee in which he claimed that when he was attracting, it resembled taking the line for a stroll. This expression gave me the last motif (view Illustration 1): to make a light in weight structure for a lounge chair with huge wings. The upholstered model of this came a year later.

Senta was 3 times harder, but as a result of my experience and research, it went top ten times quicker. The details are almost invisible: the mild contour of the goblet connects to the wafer-thin, cone-shaped stem, which then moves parallel into a level base. The bottom of the base has a facetted advantage that records the illumination and allows the glass to hover millimetres over the table.
