In a return to the dialogue between their two different creative worlds, Bacon and Cox bended, folded and intertwined thin strips of wood to create a stunning three metre high, nine metre long installation. The structure consisted of a solid, steam bent, semi-elliptical structure housing swathes of timber woven by hand. Continuing in a straight line, thinner wooden strips gave rise to large, expressive arcs developing into elegant and sinuous shapes. 

Designer Sebastian Cox and sculptor Laura Ellen Bacon opened the borders of the installation literally, in a live performance that during Salone del Mobile, at the Porticato Largo Richini at University Estatale of Milan during Interni Open Borders in 2016.
