Knitting the future: exploring new areas.
The new D-house by Dyloan project
Edition 92
As part of Fashion at Work, D-house urban laboratory presents Knitting the future: exploring new areas in collaboration with The Woolmark Company and Suedwolle. The goal is to investigate the use of wool and knitting in different sectors. This is done by using D-house technologies to produce artifacts featuring the innovative Icevit yarn made from merino wool from The Woolmark Company and Grilon® polyamide yarn from Expotex.
Icevit yarn melts with heat and blends with wool, providing no pilling or abrasion but pure functionality and strength. A pair of designers will create the artifacts: Vittorio Brachizio, founder of the eponymous knitwear brand and winner of Who's on Next? Uomo with his S/S 2016 collection and Giulia Ber Tacchini, founder of Maissa, a brand based on 3D printing and high-quality Italian craftsmanship.
