This small outdoor retreat of aluminum punctured by 5,000 tubes derives its name from the Scottish pronunciation of the words sit out. The square, hollow tubes, also of aluminum, are capped with transparent orange acrylic. Each tube points to the exact center of the structure, so a single light source can illuminate them all. They also serve a structural purpose, supporting the whole building like a bed of nails.
