Knitted Army is a range of fabric furnishings by Berlin-based Italian designer Andrea Brena, who is currently studying at programme at the Eindhoven Academy. In this collection he revives the art of arm-knitting, a process in which he reuses discarded fabric strips from Italian textile factories to knit into carpets, pillows and chairs using only his arms as the guide. The work was on show at DMY Berlin 2012 on 6-10 June.
