Amsterdam-based brand and studio Róhe Frames populated a show space with curated vintage furniture and Crafted Columns, a woven installation by artist Fransje Gimbrère, to launch its latest collection during Amsterdam Fashion Week.
The Róhe Frames exhibition took place in the Jordaan neighbourhood of central Amsterdam within a white-walled space that was largely lit by a barrel-vaulted skylight above.
Here, Róhe Frames incorporated its latest collection of trans-seasonal and knitted pieces amongst curated pieces of vintage and contemporary furniture. In the corner of the room, Dutch artist Fransje Gimbrère created a large woven installation titled Crafted Columns.
Gimbrère looked to knitting techniques to inform her design of three black-yarn volumes, crafting the handmade installation using hundreds of ropes, cords and yarns of varying thicknesses and weaves.
The yarn installation was suspended across the ceiling of the Róhe Frames space via means of hoop-shaped supports. Gimbrère wove and braided the yarn, cord and rope across the supports in order to then drape the volumes in a column-like style within the space.
Many of the vintage furniture pieces incorporated throughout the space were wrapped and upholstered in excess yarn used in Gimbrère’s installation.
“Hundreds of different cords made of natural materials create a three-dimensional play,” said the brand. “The art exhibition tells the story of a conscious and multidisciplinary approach, characteristic of Róhe.”
“Crafted Columns explores the dialog between fashion, craftsmanship, art, and collaborations in a physical space where all of these disciplines can coexist,” Rohé Frames added.
Also on show were a steel chair and bench by Dutch designer Paul Coenen, which were carefully placed between subtly waved clothing rails.
Solid wood pieces – such as a 1970s lounge chair upholstered in Icelandic sheep skins – lent by home furniture store Fundamente added a warmer touch to the space.
“Good things in life can’t be rushed, that’s why we are committed to sharing the beautiful stories of the handmade,” said Róhe Frames of the exhibition.
“By shedding light on the art of knitting, we hope to spark a deeper connection between our customers and the Róhe pieces.”
The brand also collaborated with UK-based fashion designer Amy Powell to create a line of hand-knitted garments comprised of six experimental knitted tops.
