Hey Franky, thanks a million for your patience and incredible programming skills! The four plates in 2mm stainless that you lasered for me were perfect, but they were only the beginning. Nick Ervinck sliced my Photoshop rendering into sections, Thierry turned the sections into a wooden form, and Norbert and I hammered, cut and welded the steel until it fit the form; then polished it for weeks to achieve the final result.
The luminous, twisted mountains of stainless steel and copper wire in the yards of the transport company inspired the design. But none of it could have been done without the assistance of Thierry De Schrooder. My sincerest thanks for your endlessly inventive approach to all the projects I have brought you over the years.
