An unusual experience with a collector was an invitation to dinner, I should please look at something in his new house.

There was an opulent reception room with a folding door consisting of six elements, which folded three elements exactly over each other to the right and left.

He asked me to design these doors with coloured glass. I already had an idea during dinner and talked to my client about it.

I had a rough idea of how much the work would cost and wanted to make it a theme, whereupon my client said he wanted to give me all the freedom I needed, because he said that he would get a better job than if he influenced finances and style. This I can confirm again.

At the farewell I got a nice cheque which made me want to buy materials and above all a sophisticated design for this project.

In the end everybody was very satisfied.

That’s how it should always be.
