He was fascinated by all those different kinds of objects they knotted. So he asked them if they could teach him some techniques.

He knotted for three months to perfect the technique. Then he started to work on his designs. For the lamps and chair only a single wire is used and knotted in a form reflecting its maritime inspiration.
