This suspended wine glass rack is extremely interesting. The way it interacts with the light fixtures is intriguing. The two functions seem to become part of the same intricate design. The rack hangs above the dining table and can be accessed by all those sitting there. Under-cabinet wine glass racks are also practical and space-efficient. They can be combined with a wine rack and integrated into the kitchen furniture. The glasses can be placed above the sink, making it easy to wash and dry them.
In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.
All over Italy, visitors stand gaping at the fluidity of the garments in classic statues. Similarly, it’s hard not to be astonished by the detail in these tables that Knibb has designed. You feel as if you will reach out and touch well-worn, soft fabric, yet instead your fingers meet with cool, solid marble. It’s as if opposites have morphed together into a single tactile contradiction.
