A long time ago when I justed started this blog I posted about Christien Meindertsma’s giant knitwork. I just found this picture (via Les Carnets du Design) of a piece Christien created for the exhibit Design for a Living World, which just opened at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The exhibit aims to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design. Christien used wool sourced from a sustainable sheep ranch in Idaho to create a large scale knit rug a “flock” of smaller components, each one made from 3.5 pounds of wool, the yield of a single sheep. Then she sewed them all together to make one giant rug.
