Technology has the capacity to create images so tangible that it's hard to distinguish what's real and what's virtually created, as shown by the designs by Korean artist Chae Young Kim. This collection of textiles was digitally manipulated by the designer, who -- with the help of 2-D vector graphics -- created fictional lines that resemble a knitted pattern.

Her set of pillows, blankets and cushions is detailed and stunning as it has the appearance of a handmade knitted collection. Titled 'The Knitted Room,' this project wonderfully blends technology with old traditions. Even though they're created by use of computer software, these products have the warmth and fluffy texture of wool.

The Chae Young Kim linen set is modern and sophisticated -- perfect for contemporary spaces.
