Studio Gnu is a whole new species in the world of interior products.
With a firm belief that no animal need suffer for its art Studio Gnu's products are inspired to create all the character and personality of those in the wild without harming a single hair on their very fine heads.
turquoise tangerine knitted products are designed to be fun, functional but with a slightly ambiguous nature. The present quirky collection is inspired by a fascination with simple patterns and graphic forms. Colours are abundant and shoes, cars, women in dresses, arrows, and much more, all race about the surface of the soft furnishings. Cubes and cushions of varying sizes and dimensions can be played with, sat on or just admired. All products are presently made with knitted lambswool which has been felted for added strength and durability, but yet retains a soft and tactile quality.
