obo Article - Now THIS is knitting!

As a key Haworth Knowledge Partner, obo are most excited to share with you 'Digital Knits', the latest in Haworth's ever-evolving design and innovation mission.


What if your desk chair could offer the refined cosiness of your favorite sweater along with the support and style of the latest running shoe—combining beautiful knit patterns, soft high-performance fibres, and breathable comfort?



Produced using state-of-the-art digital knitting machines and custom fibre compositions—based on Haworth's specific requirements for strength, durability, and softness—Haworth Digital Knits offer new and unexpected textile possibilities.


Removing typical design constraints, knits provide more freedom to create striking, unique pieces with patterns, colours, textures, and performance elements unavailable elsewhere. This also opens the door to future opportunities for creating bespoke pieces through yarn fibres, colors, and stitching.



Haworth Digital Knits are the embodiment of design and innovation—creating workspaces with the residential warmth people are drawn to. Look for more designs and fresh ideas to come, as their scientists, engineers, designers, materials experts, and globally renowned manufacturing partners continue to work together, researching and developing new uses for knitting technology across their range of product lines.


And because Haworth Digital Knits are engineered to exact dimensions, there is no cutting or leftover material, producing perfectly-sized, zero-waste results that support organisational sustainability efforts.


Bravo! If you'd like to arrange a showroom visit or simply receive more information or textile samples, we'd be delighted to help.
