The name Catenary refers to the natural arch that's created by a cord hanging from two points. When I lived in St Louis, I learned that the shape of the Gateway Arch was inspired by this type of curve, and I've always liked the simple elegance of that shape. I was interested in working with this particular shape with this group of fabrics because of how they work together. The fabric is angular, kind of masculine, and somewhat raw, whereas the arch is a graphic curve with some softness to it. Together, I find their balance to be well suited.
