A handcrafted textile installation, commissioned by Róhe Frames,
for its immersive pop-up gallery and showroom, during Amsterdam Fashion Week 2022
"One long yarn forms loops, stitches, and thus a new whole"
Within the making of Crafted Columns, Fransje Gimbrère explored the many possibilities in which a single yarn can be manipulated by hand into a new form.
Inspired by the principle of knitting: where one yarn forms stitches that interlink and create a new whole, Fransje shows the beauty and versatility of what seems a simple occurrence. She reveals its potential and different outcomes, by zooming in on the elemental level of, and through manipulating, yarn and textile crafts and production techniques.
The result: 3 crafted columns, each with their own textile craft identity.
Róhe Frames presented Crafted Columns in their experiential exhibition, a world where craftmanship and collaboration meet, alongside the new FRAME 02 collection. The expo tells the story of a conscious and multidiciplinary approach.
