Baskets that move and change

venetian architect and designer andrea deppieri of newton & son has expanded on the original wooden headwear concept from tête de bois to create a basket & centrepiece collection. the small structures consist of a strong sculptural form that is made using wood from sustainable, regenerating eco-forests. the products are all handmade in italy and offer a dynamic and unexpected energy, varying in shape depending on the way they are placed down. the series uses a combination of different materials, including iron, wood and eva – a recyclable rubber which is soft, flexible and light weight. the ‘tête de bois basket & centrepiece collections’ will be presented at the concept store spazio rossana orlandi, during milan design week 2014 and also at bagatti valsecchi museum in milan.
