After the dissolution of CoBrA, Stephen Gilbert, a fellow member of the movement, went on to experiment with abstract shapes in space that resulted in metal space constructions. Constant was going through a similar development and it was Gilbert who motivated him to start working in 3D — the result was this work. It led to an intensification of their contact.
