SNITT is a collaborative project between designers from the UK and Norway.
The name translates as “section” and is a representation of both the design and construction techniques applied throughout the project and simultaneously to the choice of design team which includes furniture designers, architects, product designers, fabricators and facade / pattern designers.
The installation represents the intersection between a bench, a facade system and a graphic canvas. As one moves around the installation it can be enjoyed as a furniture piece or can transform to a facade when perceived at a different scale. The geometry is then directed by the directional patterning of lines on the acrylic sheets intersected by dark slats of MDF.
Installation has the potential to be custom made to fit a multiple number of contexts, internal or external. Including booths, benches, partition walls, retail displays, shelters, facades.
