[R-007]FROTTAGE

  • 2021-
  • Japan / Tokyo, Japan / Wakayama

We created a “knit laminated board” by layering knit and wood. The knitting pattern and the grain pattern of the wood live together in a single board.

The elasticity of Kanemasa’s high-gauge knit follows the unevenness of the blasted wood grain, creating a frottage-like pattern.

This is an attempt to create a method that combines geometry and organics, softness and hardness, and industrial and craft characteristics.
