WWF initiated the design and production of contemporary, sustainable rattan furniture together with Swedish designers, graduates from Lund University, in cooperation with local producing companies. The European Union funded programme focuses on sustainable production and processing of rattan in the Mekong region. The first results were exhibited during this year’s Ambiente Fair in Frankfurt.


'MOA' Basket-series by Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau

With her sophisticated glass-fibre stool ‘Nido’ Eva Marguerre received the biggest reputation a young designer like her can dream of. Together with Marcel Besau she now launched a new series of baskets which is based on a completely new material combination out of elastic yarn and resin.

“The basic form is built of innumerable crisscross spanned Lycra-yarns where every route is different, leading somewhere from bottom to top or someway from right to left, seemingly without beginning and end. The outcome of this is an interwoven elastic net, that is afterwards drenched in resin and pressed over a suitable form. Thus, the formerly two-dimensional flexible structure is transformed into a three-dimensional form, creating fruit-, newspaper-, and paper-basket which are solidified by hardening of the resin”, the designers explain.
