Colourful Knot

Case study

Story behind

Mirka Jelínková, Sans Souci designer, is describing the idea: “I wanted to approach a popular glass component in a different way. To play with its shape, colours, and fitting. As one of the most frequently used components, a drop seemed perfect for this ‘game of design’. I replaced the oblong-shaped drop with a round bulb, and applied a surface optical pattern and bright colours. By combining four bulbs, I created a feature that can be put on a central rod and formed and twisted into different shapes, such as circles, curves, or ovals. One possible result is a giant six-metre knot.”
