Skandium presents 'Knit Wits' with iittala for London Design Festival 2009
For London Design Festival 2009 Skandium is partnering with Barley Massey of Fabrications, East London. Barley Massey and ‘Knitty Gritty’, a collection of inspired knitters, presents ‘Knit-Wits’ a collection of iconic Iittala products that are dressed in knit and displayed at Skandium on Brompton Road and Marylebone High Street. These witty and irreverent creations are one-off designs that are available to buy. Some may be completely covered up, but perhaps you will still recognize the iconic Iittala design? Our little Kivi’s will need to keep warm in the long winter months, so Barley Massey and Knitty Gritty has created especially for them, cute little bobble hats to keep the chills out and the warmth inside!
Iittala together with Skandium have the pleasure of inviting you on a knitting adventure. Knit-Wit opens on September 24th and will run until Sunday 27th September. To celebrate the installation we have knitting classes taking place at Skandium, Brompton Road on Thursday 24th September from 6-8.30pm – these are completely free and will be available on a first come first served basis. Hot tea, scrumptious cake and biscuits will also be served to all our guests on the evening.
