Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex are students at the University of Art and Design Lausanne and they’ve created an amazing multi-functional device called “Rocking Knit,” which is a rocking chair that knits hats as you rock in it, for a recent exhibition called, “Low-Tech Factory.”

“Rocking-Knit” is a new interpretation of the rocking chair. It offers its user productive moments of relaxation. The to-and-fro movement of this armchair knits hats for the winter and requires no exertion whatsoever
