The Barcelona Collection Basket is made using 100% recycled paper waste and FSC certified wood. Its round shape and vast volume make it great for holding various objects and even though it is paper, it may be used as a laundry basket. The wooden ring at the top is made with radiata pine, for its beautiful raw feeling and to make the basket more sturdy.
The product is designed by Hans Thyge & Co.
How it was made
To make the basket we compress a paper pulp made with recycled paper and water. For the wooden ring we chose to use FSC certified radiata pine, which is given a final touch with Linoil. All of our paper products are handmade and have individual character. Please know that as we are using paper waste, there is a small possibility that the paper paste contains other materials.
Dimensions and weight
Measurements: Height 29 cm x Ø Diameter 53.5 cm at the top and Ø 40 cm at the bottom.
Our products are not made for the outdoors. The paper paste cannot withstand substantial amounts of water or other liquids. However, due to the density achieved in our production process, it is a resistant and durable material.
We do not recommend keeping the paper paste basket in humid environments for long periods. In case of incidents, remove liquids with a dry cloth by letting the fabric absorb the liquids and gently dry the product. Try not to rub the wet paper paste as it could damage the surface.
Dirt and dust can be removed with a dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner. Paper paste is a natural material like leather or wood and likewise might develop a patina or evolve.
