Phat Knits by Bauke Knottnerus

The Rotterdam-based designer Bauke Knottnerus created a series of giant threads to create, knitted or not, interior products embellishing the entrance hall and exhibition space during the Unravel Knitwear in Fashion exhibition at the MoMu Fashion Museum of Antwerp. His Phat Knits series are large-scale knitted design elements, created with oversized needles to weave the huge threads together. This synthesis of art, fashion and furniture gives gigantic and spectacular knitted pieces. He explains, “These things I make could end up as furniture or as textiles, it’s more like creating media that can be used to construct a coat or a carpet or a curtain.”  Amazing work! (Yes… I’m dreaming about it for the upcoming winter!)
