Underlying this project is formal and material research engaging in the influence of the raw material on the object's character, form and cultural contexts. Wicker is an organic material traditionally associated with the world of crafts, but which has an industrial
manufacturing method and consistency in its dimensions. This technical datum makes it possible to plan standard connectors that enable diverse connection possibilities, and thus create a range of forms that rely on the material's characteristics and boundaries.
