Larch Basket is a minimal basket created by Paris-based designer Samy Rio for Karimoku. Samy Rio combines craft and industry is not only a question of scaling up quality but also maintaining control over the myriad of sustainable objects he develops. Treading a fine line between these normally polarized modes of production, especially within the European context, the young talent is able to reinvigorate otherwise mired artisanal traditions while also taking mass production to task. The Larch Basket uses larch veneer in a weave pattern to create a lightweight basket with a fabric handle.
