Model as a result of playing with spiral structures.
The base is a hexagon, the arms maintain the hexagon shape. They spiral outwards from the base with a 120º angle between them, going counter-clockwise. To make the model more airy and pleasing to the eye, the arms go outwards for two steps before taking a 60º turn to the left. After 6 turns all three arms meet again in the starting hexagonal position.

To make the model more interesting for spectators, the air space inside the model has been outlined by horizontal lines of silver rods.

The model's Flickr page has views from other angles.
