Three Tubes presents a visual puzzle. Three disconnected cylinders are aligned in a column as if by magic. But if your eyes trace the path of the shapes from bottom to top, you'll discover that it really doesn't defy gravity. Israel Hadany sheathed the rugged, structural steel frame with a stainless steel skin.
