Inside the Brand
Made By Hand is a Danish brand based in Copenhagen with a passion for craftsmanship and timeless refined product for the home. Our designs have a clear materiality and aesthetic honesty and quality materials are meticulously chosen and small details are picked for their purpose and finesse.
The Knit-wit lamp is designed by Copenhagen based design studio ISKOS – BERLIN founded in 2010 by design duo Boris Berlin & Aleksej Iskos. With inspiration from the lit sphere of the sun and the classic rice paper lanterns the Knit-wit lamp design is both classic and innovative at the same time.
ISKOS – BERLIN has won numerous national and international Design Awards and represented in collections of several design museums around the world. Among them are the Design Museum Denmark; Die Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum Munich; Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein; Museum of Modern Art, New York and more.
Knit-wit is the first 3D knitted modern design lamp for the home. Though knitting is an old craft, it hasn’t yet been exploited for modern design lamps. The knitted materiality of the Knit-Wit lamp distributes the light through the yarn’s pattern, making each lamp distinctive and decorative for the home.
The Knit-wit lamp is a sustainable design. 3D knitting is a very progressive technology that allows for the creation of complicated 3D shapes without any cut-offs and sewing; in fact, there is no waste of yarn at all. With today’s advances in technology, knitting is becoming one of the most sustainable and versatile methods of textile production.
The Knit-wit is made with a knitting techniques providing enormous flexibility in achieving variations in transparency, colour, patterns. For bespoke and unique interiors the technology allows Made By Hand to make truly unique Knit-wit lamps meetings a interior colour scheme and architectural programmes.
