Named for collaborations between the owners, Project No. 8, the latest NYC avant-boutique, carries some of their earlier projects (under the heading Various Projects) as well. The Angora Brick is an actual brick covered in hand-knit fuzzy angora, and one of many other knitted works that co-founder Elizabeth Beer conceived. A play on contrasts—softness versus hard right angles and the weight of the brick, masculinity versus femininity—like Knitta Please, the art object is a surprising and unconventional application of knitting. It's $100 from Project No. 8 (+1 212.925.5599).
