Innovative construction techniques, combined with a sensitivity to materials and a manipulation of scale, create fabrics that explore the boundaries of form and function and the 3D possibilities of knitted textiles. The accidental patterns and forms found in a pile of cables or a heap of old tyres are explored through the structures of knitting in this contemporary collection of concept fabrics for interiors.
