A particularly extravagant body, the claimed due to the interplay of concave and convex curvature of a complex architectural form. From the architecture of the Baroque, these lines of development are derived, the influence by changes in the proportions and volumes, the traditional perception of space and body. The curved line and the curved bodies are the dominant means of expression in architecture as in furniture production.
