DEDON has teamed up with digital collective Basketclub to challenge more than 20 international designers
to create woven baskets using DEDON Fiber. During April 2021, each participating Basketclub member developed a unique design inspired by the smiling ‘Sun of May’ emoji, which began as a symbol of Argentine
and Uruguayan independence but today brings warm, positive vibes to text messages sent around the globe.
The designs by creative minds such as Sebastian Herkner, Carole Baijings and many other are be presented on the Instagram account of Basketclub from the beginning of May 2021.
Designers Adrianus Kundert and Jamie Wolfond founded Basketclub in
early 2020 as an online response from within the design community to
countless cancelled exhibitions and in-person collaborations. Taking
their mutual love of weaving as a starting point, the pair conceived the
club as a digital platform for sharing ideas, inspiration and feedback. A
different emoji serves as the ‘brief’ for each month’s project. After receiving
the brief and materials, participating designer have one month
to create their basket.
