Knutson knits

Chemistry that involves yarn is my kind of chemistry. These knitted mohair and nylon/glass bead textile (otherwise known as reflective fabric, a la what you wear when cycling at night) vessels are the work of industrial designer Lara Knutson. Spotted on Vogue Living’s blog from Milan 2012, however images above are from Art Basel Miami (natural turquoise rock vessels) and the Soft Chemistry series for NY Design Week. I have a strong sense that the shimmering quality of these objects are hard to capture with a camera – would love to see them in the flesh/knit. HF.
