We love posting about some of the more unique and inventive design ideas out there, and today is no different. Dezeen have this morning featured work by Italian designer Loredana Bonora, who have covered furniture and lighting in beautifully elaborate crocheted yarns of cotton, PVC, plastic tape and washing lines.
The unusual materials used are crocheted using traditional techniques, and combined with the adornments of flowers and feathers create a surrealist, almost Victoriana effect.
Called ‘Nodi Contemporanei’ (contemporary knots) the pieces are being exhibited at Plusdesign in Milan.
Some of the photos here were taken by Carlo Beccalli, via Dezeen.
