A limited edition knit collaboration by SIBLING & Jim Lambie for House of Voltaire. The Scottish made 100% wool jumper offered in a men’s M has a relaxed easy fit. The exclusive black and white graphic design is also offered in a scarf.
Lambie’s trademark works use coloured vinyl tape arranged into patterns around the floor of the gallery space, tracing the shape of the room to reveal the idiosyncrasies of its architecture. For this special collaboration SIBLING translated one of Lambie’s famous floor works into a knitting pattern.
About the artist & designer
SIBLING launched in 2008. The premier menswear collection included bright and playful subversions of classic knitwear styles such as cashmere Twinsets in sequin leopard and sparkling Bretons. Today, the leopard motifs, Breton stripes and vibrant colour have gone beyond aesthetics, becoming integral to the label’s DNA.
Artist Jim Lambie (b. 1964 Glasgow, Scotland) specialises in colourful sculptural installations made from everyday modern materials including pop culture objects, such as posters and album covers, and household accessories. The other trademark theme in his artistic practice is using brightly coloured vinyl tape arranged into patterns around the floor of the gallery space, tracing the shape of the room to reveal the idiosyncrasies of its architecture.
Lambie graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1994 and was shortlisted for the 2005 Turner Prize. He lives and works in Glasgow. Lambie is represented by Anton Kern Gallery, New York; Sadie Coles HQ, London; and The Modern Institute/Toby Webster LTD, Glasgow.
