DESIGN AUTHENTICITY CRAFTMANSHIP LUXURY
Iben Høj has for the past two decades been part of the Nordic fashion scene, where her delicately knitted and feminine creations have added a sense of optic lightness and professional weight to the business. Over the past six years Iben Høj has expanded her three-dimensional knitting into spacious and artistic expressions, staging her textile signature in both small and gigantic installations that appear at once delicately fragile and potently strong.
Educated as a knitwear designer from the University of Brighton, Iben Høj combines the proud English knitting tradition with her Danish design inheritance that merges the poetry of knitting with a Scandinavian’s functional approach to form and use. Iben Høj lives and works in Kerteminde on the Danish island of Funen and has received numerous grants and honours throughout her career. She is represented in the permanent Textile and Clothing Collection at Designmuseum Denmark and exhibits internationally on a regular basis – most recently as part of the MINDCRAFT exhibition during the Milan Design Week in 2018.
