Basket Bowl / smaller objects

What is a bowl and what is a basket? The definition depends on the shape, the material and how it’s used. So, when the bowl becomes soft it is perhaps transformed into a basket.
This transformation of an object’s function, from one perceived category to another is our inspiration.
“When I was visiting a heat-press moulding factory, I found an insole stashed away in a corner. It fascinated me. And I learned that its unique production method integrates the onto- hot metal tool press”
A basket to throw your everyday precious objects in. Glasses, watch, phone, jewellery etc. Or as an organiser for knitting yarns. A soft centrepiece for the table. By the reading chair. Or bedside. Round or oblong.

The textile is furniture grade wool fabric by Kvadrat.
