Inspired by traditional wicker techniques, Strand consists of two storage baskets in anodised aluminium. The familiar aesthetics of the objects, combined with the strength and precision of the aluminium, gives shape to a modern interpretation of a classic household object. The baskets are functional and versatile and can be used for storing everything from pillows and blankets to wood and magazines.
