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.
