Wind Knitting Factory

July 16, 2009



This is so cool…
“With the power of the wind, a knitting machine knits from the outside towards the inside of the building. The knitted material is harvested from time to time and rounded-off in individually packaged scarves. Each scarf has its own label which tells you in how much time it has been knitted and on which date.”

Rhyme and Reason

July 11, 2008


‘”rhyme&reason” is an exploration in using light as a material to create transformative fashions. Reflecting on the change from day to night, inconspicuous white knitwear is enlivened by illumination, creating a sense of magic and mystery for the wearer.
When not being worn, the pieces double in function as lamps, avoiding the fate of hanging neglected in a closet.’

Wi-Fi Detector Shirt

July 11, 2008


You can display the current wi-fi signal strength to yourself and everyone around you with this Wi-Fi Detector Shirt. The glowing bars on the front of the shirt dynamically change as the surrounding wi-fi signal strength fluctuates. Finally you can get the attention you deserve as others bow to you as their reverential wi-fi god, while geeky chicks swoon at your presence.

Felt Rocks

June 8, 2008


These are real rocks! Random foam chunks and wads of polyfill (the big purple and peach ones) have been felted with merino and colonial wool. Super soft, these have been wet felted by hand and machine, so they’re tight and won’t peel, but still squishy so they won’t hurt when you throw them.
