"Fibonacci is the winning design created by University of Huddersfield student Louisa Knapp, for the Campaign For Wool Student Competition 2020.
The prize awarded was to have her design commercially woven by the highly innovative Botany Weaving Mill in Dublin, and to receive ongoing mentoring from Margo herself. We are pleased and proud to be able to include Fibonacci in our collection.
Responding to the brief set by Margo Selby and Alternative Flooring, Louisa entitled her submission “Stay at Home”, and her timely design was born out of the new realities that lockdown presented this year. The project addresses the shift towards working-from-home and – with the concurrent (and arguably linked) environmental crisis – the urgent need for symbiosis between the natural environment and our working environment, in the micro and macrocosm.
Fascinated by the psychological concept ‘biophilia’ (humanity’s deep need for connection to the natural world), Fibonacci features a mesmerizing motif woven in wool pairing the beauty of mathematical patterns – prevalent in the natural world, and so suited to weave – with a bold style of graphic design – very appealing to Margo"
