Designers Rie Egawa and Burgess Zbryk created these awesome sculptures and floor lamp using knitted fabric as textures. They are all part of their 'Sweater Series'.

The combination of 'wool yarn, steel plastic and light' really does deliver some fantastic looking results.

The stripes remind me very much of the Paul Smith stripes seen on everything from wallets, to belts to bags.

Implications - The art of remaking and reinventing past materials into new, unexpected creations is receiving much attention in the design world and among design consumers. In addition to being novel creations, designs crafted from used items also lend themselves to the green movement currently gaining ground in society.
