Glimpt: design and craftmanship

Fun designs from Swedish design duo Glimpt - Mattias Rask and Tor Palm. Meaningful project, created in co-operation with craftsmen and inspired by their traditional techniques: Superheroes seagrass stools were hand-woven in Vietnam and Forbiden Fruit lamps with hand-decorated ceramic shades were made by The Potters Workshop from South Africa. New prototypes are still coming!
