Kvadrat presents Knit!
Knit! by Kvadrat is a series of work by 28 different designers exploring the potential of knitted textiles by Kvadrat Febrik. Knit! debuts in Copenhagen during 3 Days of Design (3-5 September 2020) physically and as a digital interactive exhibition that can be viewed worldwide.
Designers have been chosen from across the world to create pieces with Kvadrat Febrik textiles as the protagonist. Knitted textiles are three-dimensional constructions with form-shaping abilities that open up a world of material possibilities. They provided the perfect canvas for the designers to push at the boundaries of what can be achieved within their respective disciplines.
Selected by curators Anniina Koivu, Jeffrey Bernett, Johanna Agerman Ross, Njusja de Gier, and Renee Merckx, each designer was chosen for their curiosity in experimenting with materials, form and colour, with many operating on the border between industrial design and craft.
The digital exhibition features all 28 works displayed around Kvadrat’s headquarters in Ebeltoft, Denmark, transforming the space into an online gallery. On a dedicated website, viewers will be able to virtually walk through the exhibition and see each design 360 degrees, accompanied by the designer who takes the viewer through their inspirations and design process.
