furniture made with the help of wind

Designer Merel Karhof’s collection of upholstered furniture pieces, called Windworks, is made using materials produced using wind power, an inexhaustible, and free, energy source.

In 2010, she set up the ‘Wind Knitting Factory’, which is a completely wind-powered knitting machine where when it’s windy, the machine knits quickly and when it’s calm, it knits more slowly. While generally the machine knits things like scarves, Karhof decided to go bigger and upholster furniture.
