We used Kuka robot to knit copper wire structures. Knit fabric is currently used to cover and conceal, finding application mainly in fashion and upholstery. We believe that its applicability is much broader, so using it only as an external cover does not fully exploit its properties. The fabric is constructed from a single thread that can be made of almost any material. The process itself is continuous and endless, so the fabric can always be extended or unraveled.
The knit fabric is soft, without any harsh edges, its form encouraging touch – and interaction. The Knotty project shows that we can construct our world not from blocks or bricks, but knots and lines. Knit fabric and new technologies allow us to combine what is human with what is natural, bearing in mind that this artificially created dichotomy is only an illusion.
