Structural Crochet

Structural crochet is a series of laced products made of e-waste and created as a result of an ongoing collaboration with Gomos AG, a cable recycling company in Zürich. A new function and use are created in the lifecycle of electric cables.

They are self-supporting hollow structures thanks to the technique of crochet and the material features of cables. The loop technique allows to create structures with a single material, can solve compression strength problems and the pieces can easily be deconstructed without waste.

The growing structure itself becomes an ornament with the traditional crochet technique.
