KNOTTY, 2023 - A collection of playful benches with a bold and tactile textureAlcova Milan Design Week, Italy

Client: The New Raw.

“Knotty” is an innovative bench collection, inspired by knitting techniques and crafted fromthrice-recycled plastic waste. My role was to harmonize the tactile pattern with the bench shapeand optimize the design-to-production workflow. The main challenge lay in adjusting to the uniqueproperties of the recycled material, necessitating specific temperature and cooling settings inproduction. Additionally, the design generator I created enables the pattern’s application tovarious shapes, enhancing versatility and creativity.
