The concept of beginning and end is translated into the outline of the Cronos bench, emphasized in its design of straight, simple lines. Supported by twelve feet (the measurement used for time), the piece expresses a model of order, perfection and symmetry. Seen from above, a horizontal line suggests the linear time of chronology.​

Traditionally depicted as a straight line, Cronos symbolizes the linear nature of time, with a clear beginning and end. The bench, characterized by a central straight line and supported by twelve legs, serves as a representation of Cronos himself, as well as the number twelve. The significance of twelve lies in its association with order and perfection, exemplifying absolute harmony. Moreover, this number finds omnipresence in various units of measurement. For instance, a foot consists of 12 inches, calendars and clocks are structured around the concept of twelve: twelve months in a year and twenty-four hours in a day. Additionally, each hour is divided into 5 × 12 minutes, and every minute is further divided into 5 × 12 seconds.
