100% Norway at 100% Design

Yesterday, I took some time out to visit 100% Design at Earl's Court. One of the coolest things I saw there was Siren Elise Wilhelmsen's 365 - a Knitting Clock. Exhibiting with 100% Norway, this immediately caught my attention. By the end of the year, the clock has produced a 2 metre long scarf. The inspiration for Wilhelmsen's clock - measuring the time in a three-dimensional form; in volume. The clock counts the 24 hourse per day, for each half and whole hour a needle is knitting a stitch, each day makes one knitted line. How innovative!
