Kneip is a craft, design and art studio founded by Jørgen Platou Willumsen and Stian Korntved Ruud that creates its inspiration from nature and objects with artisanal processes.
All sets are handmade. For years, the designers have worked on metals to note the formal qualities of steel, brass or copper and the way they behave over time with certain chemicals or colors.
Kneip aims to do unique projects along with the web shop. Jørgen and Stian work in a wide range of expressions and techniques, and wants Kneip to be moving towards a meeting point between art, design and craftsmanship.
The collection Pat.vol 1 shows the results of these experiments inspired by nature, climate and geometry. Kneip offers an experimental design with a number of ornamental objects that show the effects on metal.
