Kvadrat Knit: Wave Zero at 3 Days of Design, Copenhagen

3-5 September 2020

For Knit!, Amsterdam-based designer Maria Blaisse and interior architect Bin Xu set out to create Wave Zero: a piece of furniture that could simultaneously activate and relax the body – a design that brings the body into balance.

Knit! by Kvadrat is a series of work by 28 different designers exploring the potential of knitted textiles by Kvadrat Febrik. Knit! debuts in Copenhagen during 3 Days of Design (3-5 September 2020) physically and as a digital interactive exhibition that can be viewed worldwide.

Selected by curators Anniina Koivu, Jeffrey Bernett, Johanna Agerman Ross, Njusja de Gier, and Renee Merckx, each designer was chosen for their curiosity in experimenting with materials, form and colour, with many operating on the border between industrial design and craft.

The digital exhibition features all 28 works displayed around Kvadrat’s headquarters in Ebeltoft, Denmark, transforming the space into an online gallery. On a dedicated website, viewers will be able to virtually walk through the exhibition and see each design 360 degrees, accompanied by the designer who takes the viewer through their inspirations and design process.
