STRIKKS is a research lab for all possibilities in knitting. On show are 5 experimental textile constructions in black and white. Our research is based on the theme of hygiene, which lead to a deeper insight in the structures of water, soap and textile products. Through the lens of a microscope we discoverd constructions of spheres, bubbles and loops. These became the main inspiration for the shapes of the textile structures.
To acquire these shapes, we developed unconventional knitting techniques. With the use of technical and specialty yarns, textile contructions were composed with 3-dimensional effects. These designs can now be applied to new or existing products.
3D-Knitwear was exhibited at Salone del Mobile 2013.
