hancock baskets

Shaker design reinterpreted. Designed for an exhibition of furniture inspired by household objects at Hancock Shaker Village. Hancock Baskets were inspired by a laundry basket in a storage room at Hancock Shaker Village. Four baskets make up the family - a Large Basket for laundry or magazines, a Bread Basket, a Serving Tray, and a Mushroom Hunting Basket. The four incorporate details from various baskets we liked in the archives, but the material is modern bent plywood - which we think the Shakers would have wholeheartedly embraced for its strength and lightness.
