Hancock Baskets

Designed by Studio Tolvanen

Created by Finland-based design studio Studio Tolvanen for Furnishing Utopia, the Hancock Baskets are a minimal collection that offers a visual treat. Inspired by the old laundry basket found at Hancock Shaker Village. The collection is made up of four baskets including a large basket for anything from laundry to magazines, a bread basket, a serving tray and a mushroom hunting basket. Made from modern bent plywood the designs themselves have come from a variety of inspirations. 

The range also comes with The Hand, which is a pine toy that houses a magnetic removable thumb. The shape comes from a mitten mould as this was used frequently by Shakers to help with shrinking knitted woollens to their proper size.
