As well as any other kind of handwork, knitting now in a fashion. Who is able, knits itself is calms and saves the family budget. But if with a coverlet, not to mention a scarf, everyone consults almost, a padded stool or an armchair in house conditions to make difficult. Yes such and to a head usually does not come. But at designers of full ideas. And even if some things hint at those who usually associates with knitting (as lamp Granny - “ babulja “ - marks Casamania), knitted things is at all for old women, and for the advanced public. In any sense the tendency continues wattled and confused about which we already wrote, with that difference that now the chaotic interlacing has given way ordered vjazke, an eyelet to an eyelet.
it is possible to knit, as it is known, a hook and spokes. In spite of the fact that the first technics like is closer to an interior (salfetochki there different, curtains), in design it has not received the big development. Lacy table Crochet of Marseilles Vandersa whom knit at factory Moooi, and remained a lonely masterpiece. But spokes at designers in full to a course. Quite often to prove that their furniture - not imitation are viscous, and the real handwork, they knit directly in shops and at stands. As threads and spokes for knitting of large-sized subjects are necessary corresponding, it turns out very ridiculously: as though the normal person has pulled down knitting accessories at a giant. In types are viscous I is not strong, but how separate subjects are similar on a sweater, interernye designers use most that on there are traditional receptions. Short of originals which knit from telephone wires, synthetic ropes and other artificial fibres, to business there are not less traditional raw materials - the sheep wool, a clap. And etc. designers do not love a mohair, wool of a rabbit for an excessive wooliness and fragility.
what subject of an interior can be connected? It seems that practically any. And that is impossible (therefore as it deals, for example, with water), it is possible to dress in a knitted cover. It is one of the most widespread ways of use of knitting. On the one hand, it is simple: it is necessary to connect only something like clothes for dolls. With another - it is practical: the subject does not lose the functions, only becoming lovelier and cosy. Collection Knit Wits presented in this autumn by London shop Skandium and the Finnish mark Iittala, - an excellent example. The well-known plates, vases and teapots have put on hats, have pulled a sweater and have tied scarfs (if to use clothes terms though there all is slightly more difficult). Idea like strange, but result touching: as though to porcelain and glass it was cold also them have warmed. Similar collections, but especially for tea services have let out this year many marks - English SCP, German Zoeppritz and so forth the clothes for cups and teapots have an important function - to warm tea during tea drinking. Something like the developed version of the woman on a teapot. More simple variant - knitted nozzles without the handle and glasses that to a hand it was not hot (in Starbucks put on cups same, but from a corrugated cardboard). Knitted covers can be put on vases (Wooly from Soonsalon), lamp shades (Granny from Casamania, Ray from llot llov and many other things), a wall clock (Gomitolo from Diamantini and Domeniconi), cords with a bulb on the end (Matt from llot llov), padded stools (Sweet from Gervasoni - at it even a neck as at a sweater) and etc. the Size has no value. Paola Navone in collection Streap Tease for Ivano Redaelli some beds, English designer Melani have covered with knitted covers Malt liquor persistently ties old armchairs. In interernom design, by the way, the idea of knitted covers too has had to a court yard: pipes and wires thus hide, columns and even lampposts are decorated.
other variant of application are viscous hardly it is less extended in view of complexity of manufacturing, but all becomes more popular. Its essence that the cover, and a subject matches not. Here already simple threads you will not manage, whatever they were thick. Though Christian Mejndertsma it was possible to the Dutchwoman. It knits the padded stools Urchin and carpets Aran from such thick cords felted from the sheep wool that they turn out firm, as a stone. With these simple like products to it would manage to achieve enviable popularity - all because Christian itself goes to New Zealand behind wool of local sheep, itself does a yarn, itself knits and, accordingly, knows the “ suppliers “ in the person. It applies on each product “ the passport “ sheep with a photo, a name and the other data. The majority of the designers, knitting furniture, artificial materials in the form of cords of the most different kinds and use the sizes. Mark Paola Lenti has connected from special silicone of an armchair and padded stools (though, of course, in a case with armchairs without a steel skeleton has not managed), design - bureau Imaginary Office has weaved in the technician of a macrame from poliuretanovyh the sausages fitted by a fabric, a seat of a sofa, Rozanna Kontadini has created mark Neo, successfully knitting ornaments, baskets and pillows from neoprenovoj a yarn. Handwork meets modern technologies, and to one another at all does not disturb.
