These Desiree de Baar knitted sculptures range from small scale fixtures to larger spatial hallways. The designer's work explores the concept of an individual's relationship with space.

Aiming to explore an emotional connection with the individual and space, de Baar's crocheted art installations play with human perception. The Dutch artist mimics everyday objects in her designs, focusing on furnishings, home fixtures like sinks and bathtubs along with her interpretation of compact functional spaces. All of her work is handmade from embroidered and woven thread.

These eccentric Desiree de Baar knitted sculptures challenge modern art ideals. Using drawings and plans to build her
three-dimensional creations, the artist surrounds her final sculptures with photographs, patterns and other preliminary work, revealing her creative process to those viewing her art pieces.
