Bertram Hotel is the name of an Agatha Christie mystery, starring Miss Marple, and that gave me the idea of a design based on a Mayfair tearoom. But I also wanted a reflection, of the sort you’d get from a completely still lake, something that looks the same either way up, but isn’t. That's what the coloured line represents, a mirrored horizon.
