Sheet Bend Wall
knitted and hoisted in residence
Design of an indoor net-work, hand-knitted according to traditional fishermen techniques. Its name Sheet Bend Wall refers to the mesh knot - a sheet bend - used by fishermen to mend their nets.
The netting consists of 600 sheet bend knots, carefully tied by hand, in more than 300 meters organic cotton rope. It is contoured by a yellow recycled polyester line, to ensure its support and attachment to their stainless steel fittings and its wooden framework.
Hoisted into the stairway hall of a residence in Berchem (Belgium), which was renovated by Flemish architect bureau Rutten & Rooze.
