Basket by Layer for Fritz Hansen

Basket by Benjamin Hubert's design agency Layer, is a timber carrier developed for Fritz Hansen using that brand's historic steam-bending techniques. The piece is formed using two different techniques made popular by Fritz Hansen: the handle is made from solid steam-bent timber and the basket is made from pressed laminated timber. The handle extends through the basket to create feet add stability, enabling it to stand firmly on the floor whilst being visually pure.

Basket is said to be a balance of classic materiality, the feminine form and useful functionality which are the hallmarks of the iconic Danish brand. The gentle asymmetric curve of the body, the handle and the material used are all intended to make the piece feel authentically connected to the company's DNA. With a slightly mid-century feel, Basket is both a decorative home accessory and functional storage as it can be used to stack papers, magazines, books, cushions, or other items.

Basket was launched during Milan design week at the Fritz Hansen retail space and is available in natural oak, natural walnut, and stained oak.
