Domestic Science: Bow Bins by Cordula Kehrer

October 19, 2011

A highlight of last spring's ICFF in New York: the work of German designer Cordula Kehrer, who has a passion for utilitarian objects such as laundry racks and waste bins. Her Bow Bins are a collaboration with the Aeta people (indigenous inhabitants of the Philippines) and Preda, a fair trade NGO. Made from sustainably harvested rattan and reclaimed bins, the containers are a whimsical take on the mismatched and are even more appealing in person, when you can really appreciate the interesting textures.
