Toshiko Horiuchi macadam is the artist who stands behind the work of art, we want to show you today.


She was known especially through your work “Woods of net” (forest of power). There is a pavilion in Hakone open air museum in Japan. It is particularly interesting that here the borders between the concepts very blurry architecture, furniture and knitwear.

Inspired by Antonio Gaudi

Sure you could have actually myself… Antonio Gaudi’s works are the probably most famous, which blur the aforementioned limits. Toshiko Horiuchi macadam in an interview himself confirmed this assumption. She says that she has studied its architecture better while studying at Tama fine art University. In addition to his works, she was also inspiration from Isfahan in Iran. The mosques there, as well as Gaudi’s work, they took the natural-looking shapes.

It stresses its specific character through the use of knitwear.

The role of architecture

On the basis of the work of “Woods of Net” one wonders quite naturally, in how far in fact it and the artist when their knitwear of the architecture were minted? Can you say, that we have to do it in a way here with a building?

This question is difficult to answer. What is certain is that it shows a deep kinship with the architecture “Woods of Net”. This is that science and art meet both.

Made by hand

Everything in the woods of net is made with their own hands by Toshiko Horiuchi macadam or projected. This creates a special relationship between the artist and her work. It reflects the personality of the artist, does this once and you can feel even their human warmth in addition to their creativity. The result is probably a perfect concept for children’s playground. Maybe they all should be made from knitwear. What do you think?
