Soft Boundaries II utilizes digital knitting technology to construct a modular, partition system for use in interior spaces. Just as clothing defines the physical body, interior designs create spaces that shape the experience of the body in these settings. This prototype is knit as a single panel using recycled polyester and spandex yarns. The structure is a series of channels which are stuffed with foam noodles then supported structurally with metal pipe, allowing for a range of configurations.
