It’s quite a while ago that I’d discovered a beautifully woven basket somewhere online and I couldn’t resist but buy it. This is how I discovered the work of US designer Doug Johnston – and that’s how I fell in love with his beautiful baskets that remind me of traditional baskets from Africa but these have a modern, contemporary look. The latest series is called ‘Density Baskets’ and these feature some colour combination that seem to be a strong reference to the traditional African baskets in fact.
But be aware: Doug Johnston is way more than a product designer. His works art, design, architecture and music, utilizing and exploring a variety of mediums and methods such as installation, fibre art, sculptures, photography and performances. Recently he has focused on a process of coiling and stitching ropes into a variety of functional and sculptural objects. Such as these beautiful baskets. And if you want to be a lucky owner of a Doug Johnston basket just like me, here’s his webshop with great designs.
Happy hump day, friends!
