Contributed by Angela Adams – Claire-Anne O’Brien Knit Stools

This just made me smile. First off I love that it’s another contribution from within our design communities on Twitter – the nice folks over at Angela Adams shared this with me – second I can’t shake the visual of Claire-Anne O’Brien sitting in a rocking chair with enormous knitting needles. Claire is a textile designer specialising in, well, knitting and has launched a line of furniture pieces featuring various dimensional patterns. I actually am not sure about the chairs but could really see some of this as pillows or rugs. Thoughts?

Claire-Anne says of her work that it’s “inspired by elements of the knitted stitch itself such as rings and loops, the structures are revealed and celebrated through exaggerated scale in bold and textured forms. Lambswool and Sheeps wool, in a mix of hand and machine knit stitches, are constructed into playful statement pieces.

One of the biggest reasons for my love affair with British Design is it’s exuberant and quirky playfulness that is quite often in stark contrast to country and people. As you may know, London Design Festival is just around the corner and we hope to bring you a lot more British Design then, along with a little surprise about what else we’ll be doing while in London. Stay tuned!

Thanks again to Angela Adams for sharing this.
