Here's some more information about Helen:


Helena Westerlind graduated from the Architectural Association this year.

The rope formations of her collection are inspired by the material qualities of rope and traditional techniques such as knitting and crochet.

These can be formed into a structured surface through knotting.

Knotting organises the continuous nature of the material through repeated movements and creates a level of complexity.

All the pieces have been individually hand-knotted by the designer in such a way that the resulting structures also enhance the nature of the rope.
