The Sweater Shop

The Sweater Work / Shop is a mobile kiosk where old knitted garments are unraveled and re-knit into something new.

The kiosk serves as a workstation and a shop, providing the resources necessary for recycling clothes and a place to sell them. The Sweater Work / Shop visualizes the process of un-knitting old garments such as sweaters, making recycling yarn and then knitting new products from these yarns. The shop design includes an alternative pricing system that offers customized products for a lower price in order to create value by engaging the customer in the process of creation.
