I blogged about ChaeYoung Kim's work last year as 'one to watch' well here is her new collection 'The Knitted Room', extraordinary and beautiful. 'Lines, generated as fine as possible by 2D vector graphics, were re-interpreted as threads to be braided and knitted onto hard surfaces. They give a warm and cosy feeling of knitted and felted fabrics; printed in grey scale the light and shadow effect adds a 3D illusion. Furthermore, an opaque heat-sensitive ink will increase the phantasmal vision revealing partly and randomly, as it gets warm from sun or indoor light'
Chae has just received an Interiors Innovation Award at The Cologne Furniture Fair and recently been featured in Domus. I was so right last year!
