Move over olek, here comes Desiree de Baar. The Rotterdam-based Dutch artist creates knitted sculptures of objects that range from domestic fixtures to chainsaws. De Baar knits monochrome rooms, and the unnoticed objects within them, focusing on the details and highlighting the poetic side of the ordinary. She not only works with knitting but uses wallpaper and embroidery in much of her other artwork.
