Knit! will debut in Copenhagen during 3 Days of Design (3-5 September 2020) physically and as a digital, interactive exhibition that can be viewed worldwide.
The designers have been chosen from all over the world to create pieces with Kvadrat Febrik textiles as the protagonist. Selected by curators Anniina Koivu, Jeffrey Bernett, Johanna Agerman Ross, Njusja de Gier and Renee Merckx, each designer was chosen for their curiosity to experiment with materials, shapes and colors, with many operating on the borderline between industrial design and craftsmanship.
Kvadrat Febrik's knitted textiles are three-dimensional constructions with form-shaping abilities that open up a world of material possibilities. They provide the perfect canvas for the designers to push the boundaries of what can be achieved within their respective disciplines.
The digital exhibition features all 28 works on display around Kvadrat's headquarters in Ebeltoft, Denmark, transforming the space into an online gallery.
On a dedicated website, viewers will be able to virtually explore the exhibition and see each project in detail, accompanied by the designer who will guide the viewer through his inspirations and design process.
Knit! is the fourth edition of Kvadrat’s Design Projects, following iterations dedicated to Kvadrat’s Hallingdal 65, Divina and Canvas textiles.
