Glasswing is a design shop in Seattle, that is being built to inspire the community around us. Our project extends to a diverse range of mediums including clothing, furniture, plants and artwork. The in-store experience at Glasswing aims to elicit an emotional connection by engaging all five senses and continually providing new and unexpected experiences. To build community we frequently host events that allow people to connect in small groups and learn by doing. Through our shop of carefully considered objects from designers that we love we hope to inspire people to lead a life of exploration that is filled with creativity and passion.
