Phat Knits are large-scale knitted design elements that were recently shown at the MoMu Fashion Museum of Antwerp. Bauke Knottnerus blended art, fashion and furniture in these huge pieces that are quite stunning. They are created using large PVC pipes and can be lounged on, stacked, or displayed as art. They even mold to the body of the person sitting, so they are pretty comfortable and functional. The process is incredible and I think these pieces are really incredible. They are something I think is really unexpected and it almost doesn't make sense because they are just so big. I really appreciate the thought behind them and I think Knottnerus blended art and functionality seamlessly. (no pun intended)
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
