studio kan/o also likes to be involved in other creative projects, as shown in recent collaborations with Independent 2016, Murmuur Architects, Baroness.o, Biennale Interieur 2016 and Original Eskimo.
2017/01With furniture atelier Tactile, kan/o is releasing a numbered edition consisting of 6 benches made out of afrormosia wood combined with two cushions, specially designed handprinted for this collaboration.the dark wooded bench and the layered textiles that are reminiscent of folded blankets, make for a beautiful ensemble.
2017/02With this brand new collaboration, OriginalEskimo-TM and studio kan/o have decided to join hands for a collection of unique, hand-crafted boxer shorts.
OriginalEskimo-TM – subsidiary of Ghent-based EskimoTM, that have produced quality underwear since 1906 – invited studio kan/o to revise around ten meters of 100% cotton in their trademark style.
The hand dyed fabrics in tones of blue originated through a combination of technical precision and whimsical coincidence, strongly alluding to marble.
studio kan/o processes the fabrics by combining the shades of dye in a bath of natural extracts on which the cotton is then carefully placed.
This brings about a unique pattern, making sure no two pieces are alike, resulting in an edition of one-of-a-kind boxer shorts.
The product, handmade in Belgium, just like the print on the packaging, can be bought exclusively at Shelter shop Ghent and originaleskimo.com. While stocks last, so hurry up
