In the check-in hall of Terminal 2 at Munich Airport an almost 90 m long band of fins floats 13 m above the ground. A total of 363 different aluminium fins were printed on each side with contrasting illustrations. A wide range of motifs appears due to the specific mounting and three-dimensional configuration of the fins.

The fins are carried out as wing sections comprising beaded transverse elements on a central tube and are covered on both sides with 1 mm thin aluminium sheets. The geometry of the fins varies in each element. The milled neuron-knot connects the vertical and horizontal cable suspensions
