Matt Gagnon never ceases to amaze us with his unique designs. Whether it's his nomad grass lounger or his funky paper table, we're always excited about his next project. Now, the prolific designer is back with the Knit Fort, an inviting cocoon-like hideaway that's perfect for anyone who needs a little "me time."
Whether it’s used as a relaxing time out space in a bustling office, a child’s playroom, a chill out zone in the back yard or an exterior shade cabana in an exotic location, Gagnon’s Knit Fort is one very cozy hideaway. The structure can be made in various sizes to fit individual needs.
The fort is made out of small pieces of hardwood (either plantation grown teak or reclaimed wood) that are bound together with rubber cord. This loose form of construction allows for a quiet personal area that is still illuminated by natural light, giving the interior space a healthy and relaxing atmosphere. According to the designer, the wooden lattice setting “creates a positive yet contradictory experience of feeling private while still being visible.”
