We believe that the future is self-sufficient and sustainable. That's why we created the Knit lamp made entirely of recycled plastic. The "Knit" lighting is made out of recycled PET. The closed loop shape of this light is meant to work in correlation with the 3D printing machine. The structure of the object follows a "vase-mode" process in order to print continuously without interruption. This process saves time and energy.

The soft, organic curves of the light contrast with the repetitive perpendicular layering lines marked by the printer, which play a role in the refraction of the light. The process is part of the aesthetic language of the object and manifests the importance attached to its materials.
