CONCEPT
The Knit-Wit lamp is designed by Danish design studio ISKOS-BERLIN.
Though knitting is an old craft, it hasn’t yet been exploited for modern design
lamps, and this was the fundamental aspiration for Made by Hand.
The knitted materiality of the Knit-Wit lamp distributes light through the yarn’s
pattern, making each lamp distinctive and decorative. The Knit-Wit family of
lamps with their basic shape, warmth and lightness, range of sizes and wide color
palette can easily and naturally find their place in any interior – from private houses to public spaces.

Concept

There can be no better inspiration for a 360-degree lamp than the lit sphere of the sun, but we also found inspiration in the traditional Chinese rice lamp.
Although centuries old, knitting is a very progressive technology that allows for the creation of complicated 3D shapes without any cut-offs and sewing; in fact, there is no waste of yarn at all. Knitting techniques also provide enormous flexibility in achieving variations in transparency, colour, patterns, etc.
Though knitting is an old craft, it hasn’t yet been exploited for modern design lamps. With today’s advances in technology, knitting is becoming one of the most sustainable and versatile methods of textile production.
The name Knit-Wit means “a person with a flair, knack or love of knitting/crocheting craft; handy with yarn and needles; a knitting/crocheting enthusiast”. It reflects the importance of the material and technology choice for our design - the advanced CNC-controlled 3D knitting is the modern incarnation of traditional knitting.
