Bow Bins

A clever re-use of plastic baskets and tubs that would normally have been landfill

I am:  Re-imagined plastic baskets

About me:

These beautiful genetically spliced baskets are made in Germany using old plastic baskets, broken tubs and buckets. Craftspeople cleverly weave rattan, wicker and reed to bring new life to these cast-offs of human existence.

 

 

We love the terminator-like qualities of these morphing objects. Although it feels a lot like an artistic statement, the new baskets are also useful.

Very clever.
