Draped Beauty

As Vico Magistretti taught us, simplicity is the most difficult and beautiful thing in the world; it takes quite a bit of talent and sensitivity to create using as little as possible, synthesis is as powerful as difficult to achieve.
Draped Beauty

Simplicity and immediacy is what made us love the clever use of a very basic material in the Plate, Bowl, Basket designed by Kimmy Kin. Double-faced fabric is draped and fastened with a standard metal pin, the resulting accordion-like structure creates smaller internal divisions, and the result is flexible enough to host whatever fancies you.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
