Spotted. 4 Legged Wooly Stool

Moving on to East London to visit 'Tent' during the Design Festival, I spotted these natty knitted stools. In a glowing orange, this covering surrounds a frame with 4 turned legs in Ash. As stated on her website 'With a sculptural approach to textiles, Claire-Anne explores form, construction and scale through the unique properties of knitted fabrics.'

I feel the stool above works particularly well because of the colour of wool used. I have found in my own work that structures appear more dynamic when shadows are cast within their volume. Of course, dark shadows contrast more with lighter, brighter tones.

I really admire the skill in transforming wool into such interesting forms.
