Knitting House
Arkitekturmuseet (Now Ark Des)

A Project by Elin Strand Ruin And The New Beauty Council
Curator: Magnus Ericson
Exhibition Identity & Catalog: Yun Yu


Imagine a three-room apartment in the Stockholm suburb of Husby where walls and ceilings and every interior are knitted. The exhibition Knitting House came alive when a group of artists, architects, students and residents in the area together thoroughly investigated and using 12 knitting machines created a reproduction of a typical apartment in the area. The exhibition identity and typography is inspired by the knitted and stretched fabric with wavy lines, and the subtle pastel color palette.
