After first experiments with flexible grids Knupper turned to more solid perforated silver plates. Less flexible in material they gave him greater flexibility for his designs as they needed no frame to keep them from fringing.
The rectangular brooch is part of a variety of small series with which Knupper explored the possibilities of creating three dimensional objects out of two dimensional grids by minimalistic means.
