Bauke Knottnerus is a Rotterdam based designer. He is inspired by the 1980's using materials

often thought of as homely to create totally original works. His pieces have already been sold

at the Pierre Berge auction house. I visited his studio & found him working on diverse projects such as

textile designs, modular flooring, bright lacquered chairs made from root furniture & new versions

of his huge knitted coil-like seating currently installed in the Mode Museum in Antwerp (UNRAVEL.

Knitwear in Fashion runs through August 2011)
