    We all know about extreme makeovers, extreme sports and extreme love, but did you ever stop to consider there is such a thing as extreme knitting? Me neither. Except this one time (at band camp).

    Enter Isabel Berglund. This fascinating artist & textile designer trained at The Danish Design School and Central Saint Martins College in London.

    “This work is designed to place itself in between categories such as design, art and fashion. It questions when a work belongs in a certain category, and why.”

    I get this sense that Berdlund is someone that colours outside the lines. You know, the sort of person that makes their own rules and carves an unusual career for themselves.

    Her work is rich in fictitious narratives, her sculptures and installations create space within space that toy with the viewers perception of reality, scale, contrasts of textures. I mean, I seriously never thought knitting could be so playful, inspiring and super badass. Respect.
