Material Exploration

by Jan Rose
from CSM Design Explorations

"Structural Knitting” is a response to the ongoing trend of amateur craft making and professional rapid prototyping. The project started as a fascination for this simple yet sophisticated technique, used predominantly in textiles but also the rising interest of worldwide manufacturers and artists adapting this technique for new processes and new works.

The project is mainly process driven and therefore I'm experimenting with different materials, which seem unusual for knitting, nevertheless these materials could bring new advantages for this process and for a future outcome.
