"The 'Straightforward square' refers to geometry, and is based on a square which represents mathematical perfection. The upper component suggests a circle, a metaphor for softness, security and emotion. The interaction between the square which is clearly rational, and the circle which represents the emotional element, creates a juxtaposition that is of a transcendental nature." Explains Gaspar Cornette.
