The piece takes inspiration from folded paper, but is fabricated from steel. The table top references a diamond kite, while the light fixture next to the table references a kite in flight. Along the table are etched diagrams for making kites from Japan, Korea, and Guatemala, countries present the HemisFair '68 World's Fair.
