Material: Recycled paper

Paper basket

Paper basket is a storage product made out of recycled paper and is produced in a handmade molding press. After examining the properties of the material, I discovered that when you wet the paper it softens the fibers in a way that it makes the sheet capable of compression molding without breaking. When the paper then dries and solidifies it retains its chubby crumpled form from the press, a form that one usually do not associate with a sheet of paper. Paper basket is a recycled and recyclable storage product in limited edition that can also be used as a trash bin.
