Knitting with Glass
This fixture was hand made by Rashid with interlocking glass modules. Knit by Karim Rashid and Michela Vianello, it covers 60 square metres and is comprised of 80,000 individual glass elements graduating from white to black.
Vianello is responsible for assembling Karim Rashid's modules into this free flowing form.
Implications - With the economic recession still at the back of many consumers' minds, it becomes difficult to think of spending hard-eared cash. However, businesses can still benefit from this by targeting those customers who are resilient in not letting unstable financial times affect their lifestyles. Businesses would be wise to still provide products that offer a sense of luxury for this niche market of select individuals.
