Knyttan

December 22nd, 2014

A few weeks ago, I discovered Knyttan, a knit-on-demand start-up in London. They offer sweaters, scarves and blanket scarves in a whole range of colors, made from Merino wool. But the cool thing about it, is that you can design them yourself starting from a many different patterns. Some of the them were designed by Nicolas Sassoon, studio Moniker and Studio Moross.
It’s no surprise that I had to design one myself, so here’s my scarf. I love it! When I ever make to London, I’ll definitely get a sweater too.

This was the design that I sent to the “factory”.

The scarf is really comfy, the label adds a nice touch to it.

Here you can see the design versus the knitted result. Somehow it got mirrored during production, I guess you wouldn’t want that when you’re designing a sweater.

To be honest, I’m not really sure how Eiko Ojala made these illustration. Did he cut them out of paper or did he made them digitally … Let’s just say they look awesome.

Voltage

January 23rd, 2013

Voltage is the title of Iris van Herpen‘s latest couture collection. 2 outfits are actually 3D printed flexible outfits. The first one is a cape and skirt, which is a collaboration with Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab. The second one is a black dress, a collaboration with the architect Julia Koerner. Both use a different 3D printing technique to achieve these result. The rest of the collection is also worth a look, it’s not like anything else out there.

Today I went to see this years DMY exhibition at the former airport Tempelhof in Berlin. DMY is an annual design fair where you can find work by new and upcoming designers. The quality of the work was quite mixed but there were definitely a few gems. Here are my favorites:
