Knitted glass fibres create a flexible, heat resistant socket for light bulbs. The Dry Tech projects, a collaboration between Droog Design and the Technical University Delft, have resulted in a few remarkable designs by so-called ‘author’ designers. In most cases, these designers did not receive their design education at a technical university, but at an art academy. They base their designs primarily on interests and personal ideas. In Knitted Lamp, Jongerius pushes the boundaries of the use of glass fibres.
