Think you're just looking at some regular old knitted blankets and pillows? Korean Chae Young Kim wants you to believe that. Known for pushing boundaries in digital textiles, Kim mixes old tradition with new technology in her new home collection. "The Knitted Room" is her project where she uses 2-D vector graphics to create lines that look like knitted threads. Cushions, throws and even wallpaper are actually printed on using computer software which allows for fine detailing and which creates that illusion of texture and warmth associated with knitted material.
Chae Young Kim’s “Knitted Room” collection is available now at the Lane Crawford Home & Lifestyle Store at Pacific Place in Hong Kong.
