With the hopes of designing something new and eye-captivating, Floor Skrabanja — a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, utilizes 3D-knitted fabric for a sculptural collection. The range reinterprets a chair, a stool, and a bench. Each piece appears "covered with a seamless, continuous piece of fabric that is sleep on like a sleeve." The collection is completed in collaboration with experts from the Textile Museum in Tilburg.
The 3D-knitted fabric is an evolution of the art of knitting, in reference to the digital age. The process combines the craft of knitting with digital pattern-making. The material that is used throughout this process "influences the shape and feel of the outcome," which differs from traditional 3D-printing techniques.
