Standardised wing-shaped basic elements are arranged in groups or rows; these structure the exhibition stands and form spaces enclosed by soft and smoothly curving partitions. In plan view the space-forming elements describe segments of a circle. The number of wing-shaped wall elements arranged along the curves of these basic shapes transfers the softly structured base lines to the vertical. Sometimes one can see through these partitions or even walk through them; other wall areas, on the other hand, are completely closed and form spaces that are enclosed and obscured from view.
