A collaborative design project

 

 

Earlier this year, two designers joined virtual forces to launch an Instagram-based, collective design project. We’re talking of Toronto-based designer Jamie Wolfond and Rotterdam-based textilish product designer Adrianus Kundert who came in on Instagram with a very simple idea: every week, they would launch a brief on@_basketclub_  asking designers to weave an object inspired by an emoji. It started as a project for an intimate group of 12 international designers, but it has now developed into a multi-effort platform with a weekly open call and a roster of participating designers that include Garth Roberts, Samy Rio, Carole Baijings, Ladies and Gentlemen Studio and a collaboration with Maharam, who provided materials for some of the most recent baskets. We have made a selection with some of the baskets we liked most, but we really invite you to check them all at their Instagram profile.
