Glaswegian Alice Palmer makes extravagantly shaped knitwear. Now based in London, she demonstrated her 'polyhedra knitting' skills to the max with her Into the Void collection. The press release cites the minimalism of Anish Kapoor, the eccentric dreams of flying machine enthusiast Gustav Mesmer, who invented an Umbrella Helicopter, and Black Sabbath as diverse influences, but you'd be hard pushed to identify them in anything more than the loosest of contexts.
