The Shaker Basket is a reinterpretation of the American Shaker style, which is known for having simplicity, utility and honesty as its guiding principles. These principles have been brought into the design of the Shaker Basket, which in form and material embodies quality and minimalism.
The Shaker Baskets source of inspiration is traditional woven ash baskets and boxes made for holding wood chips from Shaker workshops that were used in wood stove fires. These traditional basket shapes and design principles come together perfectly with the modern materials and techniques used for the Shaker Basket: the result is a refined, contemporary design piece with a hint of history. Turning away from ornaments and extravagance, the visual appeal of the Shaker Basket is in its clean, aesthetic lines.
The rounded rectangle and soft, organic curve gives it a pleasant graphical shape, making it a unique yet functional storage basket. Suitable for spare blankets, toys, fuel wood and magazines the Shaker Basket is a versatile and elegant solution to your storage needs.
