Knot Basket (Large) by Shigeki Fujishiro

Regular price $355 Unit price  per 

Description:
Designed by Shigeki Fujishiro, the Knot Basket is made out of 100% polyester red rope, vibrant in its appearance and sturdy enough to stand upright on its own - despite being completely adhesive free and shaped only by knots. The Knot Basket can be hung on the wall, placed on the floor to hold your magazines, or brought outside to double as a hand-bag or as a carry all. Fujishiro makes each basket by hand himself, in his studio at Shigeki Fujishiro Design in Tokyo, Japan.

Variation:
Due to its handmade nature, there may be slight variations from basket to basket. These variations are signs of beauty.

History: 
Born in 1974 in Tokyo Japan, Shigeki Fujishiro is most well-known for his design of FRAMES - a graphical line of mobiles held together by transparent string to create an ethereal effect of floating objects. Fujishiro has worked for the Japanese design company, IDEE as a furniture designer until he opened his own design studio called Shigeki Fujishiro Design in 2005.
