The idea uses plastic waste as a continuous thread of material that folds, twists, and loops to produce an appealing tactile surface that resembles textiles and invites users to touch it. It is inspired by knitting techniques.The thick and ostensibly soft knots that make up the sculpted material texture produce a tactile, permeable, and load-bearing surface for use in outdoor and indoor furniture as well as other architectural applications. “Knitted patterns” can be upgraded to become decorations and building components that represent a new digitally produced materiality. These patterns boost functionality by permitting water drainage and avoiding inside constructions.

“Knotty” — a collection of playful benches with a bold and tactile texture.
