Have you been to see the London Gherkin? Well, no prizes for guessing where I found my inspiration for this design – the amazing work of Sir Norman Foster! Crossing lines to create a mesh is a great way to play with negative and positive space. It also shows that simplicity is key – and less can always be more.
