Polite Limitation


Aluminium scaffolding pole, adjustable base plates.

W139, Amsterdam, NL



Working with the double 

function of the W139's front

space, as part entrance- part

exhibition-space two aluminium

poles were installed.

Each of them underlying a

directionof the spatial structure.


The adjustable base plates had

been turned and tightened to a

point which forced the aluminium 

poles to bend from the pressure,

leaving a tangible compressed

tension in the space.
