Start of project December 2018
TheKnitGeekResearch is a design research project that brings together the skills of fashion designers and engineers, to recreate a domestic machine that allows production between crafts and industry in order to push the technical limits of existing domestic machines and thus give designers more creative possibilities. This project will develop a catalog of knitting samples, with a focus on 3D developments, which will serve as a reference base for fashion designers and designers interested in the creation of flexible three-dimensional objects.
