Building floors

I have been thinking a lot about the depth of the DYI movement and what it means to the design world. There are a number of designers that are using the vocabulary of DYI and sustainability and working within the realm of commerce. One such designer is Christien Meindertsma. I have written about this work before and even coveted it... But the project Idaho seen on his web site explores the "farm to table" culture of decorative arts. The process of getting to know your sheep and then on to the product seems more and more evident in our culture...The other interesting thing that I have seen quiet a bit is the bump up in scale of the knitting to accommodate the epic task of knitting a rug.....More to come
