Textile Designer Claire-Anne O´Brien stitches stools, knits wool shirts for chairs.
Combine a fascination with fabric, love of furniture and fascination with scale and the result may be both more comical and comfortable that you would expect.
About the designer:
Claire-Anne O'Brien is a textile designer specialising in knitting. Originally from Ireland she has graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 with a Masters in Textiles. Her work plays with technique and scale creating playful and tactile fabrics for interiors. This sculptural approach to textiles brings fabrics to life in three dimensions through form exploration and furniture. Instead of draping a shirt of the back of a chair, she proposes an entertaining alternative: cover it with a comfortable lambswool button-down sweater complete with ribs, cuffs, button holes, cut and fashioned to envelope and pad your seat. Below you will find some results of her beautiful work.
