Monad Studio states that social tensions became a kind of catalyst that propelled the design concept into one that persistently engaged ones instinct to approach these key structural forms. The project intended to illustrated the contrasts between upper and lower halves of the design, where the top portion was associated with fine profound movements of varying components that particularly emphasized specific hollow areas.

The under portion consisted of a reflective, mirrored type surface with immense textural areas of tension and compression. The structure is also supported on stiletto typed legs that presents the overall structure and portrays the amount of weight being transfered to such a tiny base.

Symmetry now becomes the main focus as it illustrates a kind of gravitational restraints in an evident manner as it’s reflected along a horizontal plane.
