Design by Cordula Kehrer.
This whimsical waste basket is a study in contradiction. Created by German designer Cordula Kehrer, it is produced by the indigenous Aeta people of the Philippines via fair trade NGO Preda. Made from sustainably harvested rattan and reclaimed bins, the colorful plastic charmingly offsets the natural wickerwork. This Turquoise version features a plastic bucket/bin top with oblong cut-outs and a woven rattan base.
Material(s): Sustainably harvested rattan, reclaimed plastic
Dimensions: 10"H x 10.5"Dia
