Sne Tak is a multidisciplinary designer specialising in innovative knit based in London. 

With Masters in Art in knitted textiles from the Royal College of Art followed by a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design, Tak has cultivated an artistic identity of merging high technology and archaic organic form. 

The unique and adaptable knitted vessels are drawn from a nomadic upbringing between cultures of her.  

Tak has delivered innovative knitting as a design catalyst for interdisciplinary projects for the future of apparel, product, and transportation. Her work continues to challenges the preconception of materiality and examines the potential of knitted textiles.
