Arm Knitting Revisited via Giant Hand-Knit Furnishing Series

Stitching with string gives way to knitting with sticks, which in turn yields finger and arm knitting, an engaged way to wrap and twist your way right into the design and build process.

Andrea Brena took some time off from school to get his hands dirty (or at least brightly-colored), dabbling in the old art of arm knitting using trashed textile scraps from chairs, couches, carpets and pillows.

The result are a neat series of rugs, seats and more, all created with a physical process in which the body is involved on a high level, almost like a dance or hand-carved sculpture.
