Muuto Restore Basket

These wonderful Restore baskets from Muuto are made from recycled PET which is rather appropriate as a lot of people seem to put their pets in them. Or their logs, or magazines or laundry or toys. Pretty much anything in fact, it is almost as if Muuto have reinvented the container, something for putting other somethings in, only really stylishly. Who needs a cardboard box or an old milk crate when you can buy one of these lovely things? It's even environmentally considerate made as it is, at least partially, from discarded plastic bottles. Sometimes I wish I were a discarded plastic bottle, living forever, travelling overseas, lying in the sun on some of the world's most beautiful beaches. But thinking about it, if I were such a bottle, I could do worse than being reincarnated as a Restore Basket, an old bottle needs a purpose and what better purpose than providing cute Instagram opportunities for your French Bulldog?

 Mika Tolvanen is a renowned Finnish designer who started his own practice after graduating from Royal College of Art in 2001. Tolvanen designs products for residential and contract use from his studio and workshop on the island of Lauttasaari outside of Helsinki, Finland. Mika believes that the objective is not only to design products but rather to look at the occasions we need to design for. He feels that what really defines objects is how we use them, not what they appear to be. Design should be respectful and subordinate to use. This is exemplified by Scandinavian approach where design is always very personal. Finnish introspection permeates everything, especially the way they conceive objects. Scandinavian design is immutable, it has existed as an unbroken thread stitching the region's long history together. Only the means of realising it has changed and this is enough to make the latest expressions of Scandinavia's design continuum a reality.

Muuto are a Finnish design company who are striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with a new and original outlook. It is probably fitting then that their name is inspired by the Finnish word muutos, which roughly translated means ‘new perspective’. For Muuto good design starts with the individual, they hand pick the brightest design talent in Scandinavia and then give them the freedom to express their own personal story through everyday objects. Some wish to alter the world, others find passion in colour and shape or draw deeply from their past. How do they see a chair or a vase or a lamp, what is their relationship with the most ordinary of objects? How can that relationship reinvent and reinvigorate? How can the familiar have new life and love breathed into it? The answer is muutos. Objects made sublime through fresh perspective, objects that resonate with different types of people right across the world, objects representing the very best of Scandinavian design.
