Check out Jessica Dance’s brilliant set of knitted animal heads

We have a meeting room here at It’s Nice That HQ. It’s nice enough – there’s a few magazines – although the temperature tends to swing between icy arctic and sweaty Sahara with little middle ground. The clever folk at The Assembly Rooms wanted their meeting spaces to be better than “nice enough” though and so commissioned London-based art director, set designer and prop stylist Jessica Dance to do something a bit different. Her response was the brilliant Knit Heads which reflects her stated desire to “create tactile and inviting solutions” to a host of interesting briefs for a range of big clients. These lambswool animal heads are really beautifully done, a combination of technical craft and bags of character and charm which are making me look for any excuse to go and meet these guys. Kind of puts our magazine rack in the shade…
