MEET THE WICKER
“Meet The Wicker” aims to emphasize the strength of collaboration of craft and industry. By combining the traditional craft with the industrial metal frame the project aims to go away from the crafty look of wicker weaving and instead reinterprets the plants core values. The result is a series of products reflecting different qualities of the wicker material implemented in industrial metal furniture.
