Five years ago this week woven materials and netting featured heavily in architecture and design, as Thomas Heatherwick completed an undulating facade of woven steel around the entrance to a London hospital (above) and graduate designer Sarah Moucher presented a light made from removable ceramic links (below).
Meanwhile, Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka used laceration to transform a single piece of fabric into a net that could be draped over the steel frame of a chair (below).
On Dezeen we also featured a pair of jelly shoes and matching bag with an open-weave effect by the Campana Brothers (below), as well as a chain link fence with intricate lace patterns woven in (bottom).
