KNITMOLD / Furniture structure

KNITMOLD
KNITMOLD

You must wonder a lot that why molds need to be knitted. Mold is cold, and knitting is full of hand-made warmth. What we want to do is adding some passion into traditional manufacturing processing which is emotionless.
We wonder that if the mold is rope, maybe it can be knit. Different from manufacturing by traditional mold, we pour epoxy into temporary mold and knit it. After finish its shape, open the mold by break it. Finally, create series of chairs with unique shape and structure. To make it can be close to produced by industrial manufacturing, the raw material and process we use in our original process are both by standardizing.
