Paper basket started with a lust driven interest to investigate the possiblities of creating a product that would challenge the 2-dimensional properties of a paper sheet and the low value of paper as a material when used in 3-dimensional interior objects. When experimenting with the properties of the material the designer discovered that when wettening the paper, and thereby softening its fibers, it makes the sheet capable of compression molding without breaking. When thereafter letting the paper dry and solidify it retains its chubby crumpled form from the press, a form that usually isn´t associated with a paper sheet. Paper basket is a recycled and recyclable storage product produced in limited edition by the designer using a handmade molding press. Material: Recycled paper, eco-friendly varnish Dimensions: H 32 x D 40, D2 38 cm, V ca 27 l Dimensions varies since the product is handmade and every paper basket is different from one and another. Colour may fade over time when put direct sun light.
