Bumpy Basket – Shigeki Fujishiro (Japan)

Constructed from textiles structured around a three-dimensional grid of ropes, Bumpy Basket is a series of containers whose uneven, undulating design helps the user appreciate and understand the material qualities of knitted textiles. Using Kvadrat Febriks’ Uniform Melange, Sprinkles and Apparel lines, the designer chose to focus on the creation of beautiful curves, which would be complemented by pared-back, abstract patterns. To emphasise the qualities of his chosen textiles, Fujishiro shaped them around a pinched rope lattice that provides each basket with a soft, regular structure.
