Dean Brown: The Art of Knit

Work / Product Design

Dean Brown takes thousands of metres of wool and makes it look incredible

Former Fabrica designer and art director Dean Brown has just upped sticks and left the confines of Treviso in Italy to set up shop in London. He’s spent the last four years honing his skills designing conceptual products, installations, interiors and exhibitions with collaborators at both Fabrica and COLORS as well as further afield. Last year we fell in love with his witty take on rug design, and now he’s impressed us again with his ability to turn knitwear into an engaging, immersive environment through texture and colour.

The Art of Knit took place in New York’s Soho in 2012 as part of a Benetton pop-up store, showcasing the entirety of their knitwear range. Art directed by Sam Baron and his team – including Dean – it brought together the talents of designers and artists alike. It might have been two years ago but the images still have us reeling. Plus we’re dead chuffed to have Dean as our new neighbour. Look out London!
