The Basket

Designed by Layer (Benjamin Hubert)

This elegantly designed Basket was designed and created by London-based design studio Layer for Fritz Hansen. Benjamin Hubert was the man responsible for this minimalist basket and clearly shows talent in combining both functionality and stunning aesthetics. The basket has been made from solid wood and veneer and compliments any environment fitting to the aesthetics of this piece. The practical elements are clear and the unique take on the traditional newspaper rack is clever and original. The hand is from solid wood that has been bent through the form of steaming and allows the user to move the basket around easily and effortlessly. The veneer base of the basket has been pressure moulded.
