The iconic RESTORE basket has been expanded further into two exciting and functional new size options; the RESTORE TRAY and the RESTORE ROUND basket. Both of the new sizes are made of the same long-lasting and durable polymer felt composite as the original RESTORE and are versatile enough to be used in a variety of different ways. The ROUND basket is ideal for storing newspapers, firewood, toys, blankets and laundry. The baskets are mainly made from fibres extracted from recycled plastic bottles. MATERIAL: Polymer felt. CARE: Vacuum. If necessary use moist cloth. DIMENSIONS: Height: 23 cm Lenght: 51 cm COLOUR: black
"I wanted the basket to have an non-obtrusive nature. It’s a great little basket for storing magazines or any other bits and pieces. Polymer felt combined with a soft form give the basket a friendly appearance. The name Restore is inspired by the fact that the baskets are made of recycled PET bottles."

MIKA TOLVANEN ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“The objective is not only to design products but rather look for occasions that need design. What really defines objects is how we use them not what they appear to be. Design should not be the one that requires attention by being special.”
MIKA TOLVANEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“The way of doing design is always very personal for each designer. But the way we dwell up here has penetrated our lives and the way we design. Nordic design has always been here and there have been no gaps between periods. Only the means of manufacturing have developed, making new design more exciting.”
