Preorder now, ahead of global launch on July 12th.
“So this code is kind of like building a map, the different patterns are actually some surfaces fighting and collaborating with the other ones, their masses interlock.” - Erwan Bouroullec
Third in his Risk Knit series is this medium-sized burgundy variation. “Knitting is the magic printer”, Bouroullec states, that takes his concept to a different level. By looping a limited number of tones, he creates a three-dimensionality that is both sturdy and flexible.

Risk Knit Medium
Red, burgundy, beige
Medium: (LxW) 130×90cm (measured flat, before hanging, without tension)
Weight: app. 810g.
Dimensional changes in the artwork cannot be controlled, and are desired as part of the concept. Its construction in natural material produces subtle variations, while temperature and humidity influence the woollen medium. The fabric will lengthen after hanging, due to the structural pattern and weight.
Erwan Bouroullec has designed minimal oak brackets, to mount the knits on the wall.
Each Risk Knit will be produced in an edition of 100 units. For each edition sold, The Wrong Shop will provide a signed and numbered certificate of provenance from Erwan Bouroullec.
