The giant threads, some knitted and some not are produced industrially. The process of knitting these ‘threads’ together requires a team of up to 4 people and PVC needles up to 13 feet long. Phat Knits is a series of brilliantly over scaled furniture pieces, despite the fact that the designer claims that he doesn‚Äôt really see himself as a furniture designer.
Bauke Knottnerus is the designer of these things. He said: I‚Äôm more like a material designer,‚Äù ‚ÄúThese things I make could end up as furniture or as textiles, it‚Äôs more like creating media that can be used to construct a coat or a carpet or a curtain.‚Äù Knit, woven, knotted or piled like spaghetti, the series includes seating, rugs, and multifunctional interior objects.¬† ‚ÄúI never really explained the Phat Knits project,‚Äù the Dutch designer¬†admits. ‚ÄúPeople respond very intuitively to it.‚Äô
Vacuuming alone won’t keep your area rugs free from dirt, dust and allergens. To keep your area rugs clean and allergen-free they recommend a professional rug cleaning from the best rug cleaners.

Thus the title ‚ÄúPhat Knits‚Äù makes complete sense.¬† Unfortunately, according to Urban Dictionary, this term is somewhat passe – but in this context. Regarding the knitted or knotted pieces, Bauke‚Äôs name ‚ÄúKnott-nerus‚Äù is incredibly appropriate.
