Shown at The  Standard Hotel, East Village in NY as part of Sight Unseen’s “Hotel California” exhibit, Matt Gagnon Studio brings us Knit Fort, based off of the construction technique of his Squeeze Lamp series. By repeating a simple wooden shape in a seemingly-haphazard but most-likely exacting method, Gagnon brings and animated feel to an exterior/interior design that provides both shade and light and a sociable level of privacy.

From Matt Gagnon Studio: The Knit Fort is a flexible hardwood structure that can be made to fit the size and shape of your desires. The repetition of two wooden parts creates a complex textural surface. The assembly technique, similar to knitting, allows the addition or subtraction of columns responding to the site context without altering the design. Depending on the scale, the structure can be a play space, terrace sunshade, conference room dome, outdoor shower or interior/ exterior cabana.
