Artist Claire-Anne O'Brien's Majorly Stitched Stools and Chairs
Based out of London, artist Claire-Anne O'Brien has a talent for creating cool seating. Using knitting techniques rendered on a massive scale, this Royal College of Art graduate exaggerates the look of traditional knits by using large stitches for her furniture pieces. O'Brien was recently awarded the Future Makers Award from the Crafts Council of Ireland, and it's no secret why she attracted the council's attention. Her work is bold, ambitious, and striking. Inspired by elements of the knitted stitch, including rings and loops, Claire-Anne's sculpture-like knitted pieces are truly original. Take a closer look at her work!
