All Sewn Up: Knit Furniture

10Jan07

There’s much to appreciate about these knit furnishings by designer Emiliano Godoy. First up, the concept: fabric fashioned from rope and scalloped wood.


In detail, it inspires the feeling of crafted baseball gloves (ok, I’m waxing nostalgic here).

The innovative fabric is then used to construct a collection of furniture and accessories.
Knit Chair by Emiliano Godoy. Available in FSC-certified beech or white oak. Which means the wood comes from a sustainably harvested forest.

Piasa Screen by Emiliano Godoy.
The scaled skin of the mythical PIASA dragon-fish inspired the movement and shape of the wooden pieces. The room divider can be made in any length and is shipped folded, therefore minimizing the packaging size. Because of the knit structure, you can mold it into various shapes. Made from FSC-certified beech, maple or pine. Woven using cotton rope.

The Fab Factor: Besides being sustainably made, they are designed to be biodegradable after their useful life.

Godoy’s pieces are exclusively available in the U.S. and Canada at Branch.
