    This is a piece of many levels. There are shifting patterns (parquet deformations in which the shapes of the tiles change as the columns cross the surface of the table), changing colors and groupings and isolations of tile in the top and on the stretcher underneath the table and also on the benches. These formal elements work together to create an asymmetrical balance or tension.

    The steel columns, the legs and the tiles are all based on a hexagon or partial hexagon.
