A Back Forty Fort

June 22, 2015 by


Designer/architect Matt Gagnon’s undulating Knit Fort makes me want to camp out anywhere I can hunker down inside this beautiful design.


It’s a bespoke flexible hardwood structure made to fit the needs, size, and shape of one’s particular fantasy space.


Gagnon “knits” small hardwood pieces together with a rubber cord, creating a geometric-patterned texture from the repetition of the wooden parts.



With the addition or subtraction of wood columns, and without any alteration to the design, Gagnon assembles the fort to accommodate a particular space.



Imagine the structure as a play space, terrace sunshade, interior conference room dome, outdoor shower or interior/ exterior cabana…you decide, then get inside.

Bespoke, available in USA via Matter.
