In difficult times for trade fairs, Kvadrat hits the best idea in my opinion: an interactive exhibition made with projects by 28 international designers, called to reinterpret a knitted fabric produced by the Danish company. An explosion of experimentation, colors, shapes that can truly inspire.
Knit! by Kvadrat is a series of works by 28 different designers exploring the potential of Kvadrat Febrik’s knitted fabrics: the project was physically presented in Copenhagen during 3 Days of Design (3-5 September 2020) and, simultaneously, in a digital and interactive exhibition.
Selected by the curators Anniina Koivu, Jeffrey Bernett, Johanna Agerman Ross, Njusja de Gier and Renee Merckx, each designer was chosen for his/her interest in experimenting with materials, shapes and colors, between industrial design and craftsmanship.
The digital exhibition presents the 28 works on display around the Kvadrat headquarters in Ebeltoft, (Denmark): on the website it is therefore possible to explore the exhibition and discover each project in detail, thanks to the insights provided, which include the designers’ creative process through their inspirations.
I’ve been navigating for hours on the website, reading texts, watching videos and discovering projects, it was a great inspiration. Do it too: https: // knit.kvadrat.dk/
