Visually enthralling? Most definitely. Practical? Perhaps…perhaps not. To call Knibb’s pieces mere tables would be silly. They are the textbook definition of art: Something that is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
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.
This type of wine racks can be easily attached to the underside of the kitchen cabinets. They’re simple accessories which one can add even after the whole furniture is designed and installed. It can be part of a remodel. In the case of an under-cabinet wine glass rack, the module directly above it can be a series of open shelves or it can have a glass door. This space would serve as a wine rack for the bottles. It can also be used for other purposes. If the glass rack is part of the kitchen furniture from the beginning then it can be integrated into the cabinetry and placed at a higher level so the glasses perfectly align with the underside of the other cabinets forming a straight line.
