The design features a cantilever in the shape of a hyperbolic paraboloid. Made out of watchmakers sticks, the twisted form of the structure imparts strength to endure higher loads. The sticks have been tied together with a thread, using a special knot to hold them firmly in position. The threads used to anchor the sticks at an angle of 20 degrees are stitched to the cardboard bracket that maintains the said angle. Several sticks have been fastened together to increase the cross-section of the anchored member. This acts as the main load-bearing member, which supports the sticks on which the load is placed. The efficient design of the structure enables it to bear a load much greater than its dead load.
