On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2022, Froy and the KnitDesign Research Group of the Design Department of the Politecnico di Milano present, at Fabbrica del Vapore, an innovative and inclusive project aimed at raising awareness of mental health issues.
Psycoknit aims to be an individual and choral experience that leads to consciousness and reflection on post-Covid-19 interpersonal relationships.
Starting from the Knit Therapy theories and through innovative technologies and techniques related to the world of knitwear,
Froy and the KnitDesign Research Group propose a project that looks forward, involving the visitor in the present and projecting him on an emotional and sensorial journey thanks to knitwear.
The Psycoknit project has been conceived, designed and developed by Froy
