A sophisticated double sided framing of construction nails from 18-th century. These nails are made from iron and intended for wooden buildings construction. Being able to display them in a manner, in which they are piercing a wooden board and viewed from both sides seemed optimal and aesthetically pleasing.

A group of 4 printed artworks was given to each competitor. When we received it our mind was immediately set on a mission to find a way to present these in a manner of tradition and serenity. Before long we knew we wanted to convert them into scrolls for display. Later, it occurred to us that the framing element could, in itself, represent a place of serenity, thus, the reason the frame was stylized as a tea house.
