An Innovative, Interactive Knitting Experience
with String Theory Scarves and the DesignTO Festival
String Theory, a long time design partner of ours, produces scarves made from fabrics that they design and produce in small batches, in their own facilities in Québec.
DesignTO (formerly Toronto Design Offsite) is Canada's largest cultural celebration of art & design with over 100 exhibitions and events during Toronto's Design Week.
‘Supersymmetry’ invites visitors to create quantum connections in the form of knitted scarves, using an interactive pattern maker. The tool allows visitors to design two scarves simultaneously, one by human, the other by a responsive algorithm, resulting in both a hyper personalized knit and its unpredictable reflection. Your design is then custom knit by String Theory in Québec and will ship to your door within two weeks! In the spirit of halved friendship charms, pulling a thread will separate the scarf in two.
All confirmed RSVP’s (RSVP HERE) will be entered into a raffle to win a String Theory scarf. Winners will be called during the reception. There will also be a designer talk and light refreshments.
For those unable to attend our reception, a dramatic textile based window installation and an exclusive String Theory pop-up shop will be set up in store for the full DesignTO Festival.
