Bojito Carafe

Bojito Carafe

Bojito is designed by Silo Studio, through looking at ways of creating unique items with one mould; each time they make one it will be slightly different from the next. A textile is used that can withstand very high temperatures and still stay strong many times over. The textile mould leaves a beautifully tactile surface on the glass.

Coming from backgrounds in engineering and design, the core of Silo’s work is to look at industrial processes and materials, and adapt them to the studio setting. By adopting a hands-on approach, which they refer to as ‘Handmade hi-tech’, they aim to discover possibilities that the production line does not see, developing the expressive potential in industrial materials. A mix of craft and technology.

Bojito is handmade in London in collaboration with expert glass blower Jochen Holz. It can be used to enjoy hot or cold drinks and is dishwasher safe.

Material: Textile moulded borosilicate glass
Colours: Clear, Teal, Green, Amber, Pink
Measurements: 70 x 100 x 145 mm

Flax light

Flax light

Flax light is designed by the Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma, who explores the life of products and raw materials. With her designs, Christien aims to regain understanding of processes that have become so distant in industrialisation.

With the Flax project, Christien collaborated with farmer Gert Jan van Dongen, using his entire harvest of 10,000 kilos of flax fibers from his farm in the Flevopolder in 2010 to develop a series of products from this locally produced flax. Working from the seed to the final product. One of these products is the Flax light, which was made in collaboration with traditional ropemaker Touwslagerij Steenbergen and designed for Thomas Eyck.

Kasuri rag rug

Kasuri rag rug

Kasuri is a soft heavyweight rug made from off-cuts from the T-shirt industry. Designed by Studio Brieditis & Evans, each rug is hand-braided by two braiders Jothi and Chitra in India, making every one unique.

Kasuri is part of the Re Rag Rug project which started as an experimental design project exploring the social and ecological sustainability of the rug. The project seeks to add value to seemingly worthless materials through upcycling. The rugs are made using craft techniques that do not require large spaces or machines and are therefore suitable for cottage industry production in textile producing countries such as India, making this both a sustainable use of materials and craft skills.

Dry cleaning recommended.

Wind knitted cushion

Wind knitted cushion

This soft-sculpture cushion can be re-knotted and re-shaped as desired. Designed and handmade in London exclusively for the Fiberspace Collection by Merel Karhof, the wind knitted cushion is upholstered in merino wool harvested from the Wind Knitting Factory.

The blades of this mobile wind factory embrace more than a meter in diameter, and the wind caught by them powers the machine. In this way it is possible to knit long woollen tubes. When it is windy the machine knits fast and with less wind, the machine knits slowly. Production is dictated by nature. As each piece is handcrafted every single one is unique and marked with the knitting date and the time it took to harvest.

Material: 100% Merino wool, leather and brass detail
Colour: Grey melange
Measurements: Diameter 10cm, Length 2m
