Unravel knitwear in fashion by Bauke Knottnerus
Published on January 22, 2012
Phat Knits created by Dutch designer Bauke Knottnerus is a series of brilliantly over scaled furniture pieces. Despite the fact that the designer claims that he doesn’t really see himself as a furniture designer.
“I’m more like a material designer,” he explains. “These things I make could end up as furniture or as textiles, it’s more like creating media that can be used to construct a coat or a carpet or a curtain.” Knit, woven, knotted or piled like spaghetti, the series includes seating, rugs, and multifunctional interior objects.
He made two special editions of Phat Knits for this exhibition: GRADIENT & GIANT.
These new and unique works will embellish the entrance hall and exhibition space during Unravel.
