These Basket Containers are one of the latest projects of prolific Japanese brand nendo. Inspired by artisanal wire netting cooking tools, they gave minimal, contemporary design a hint of ancient craftsmanship. The conatainers are the result of a collaboration with Kyoto-based Kanaami-Tsuji, a firm that has carefully preserved old traditions and arts.
Each basket is hand-bent and can be used separately or as a table, when used with the matte frames. The table comes in three heights, two colours and two shapes, so combining is not a problem at all. The eyes in the wire are also just big enough to put the table legs through, allowing them to be stacked, mixed and matched.
