Suitnest Dinner by Henrik Vibskov at Mindcraft12; image courtesy of Danish Crafts. Suitnest Dinner is the ultimate picnic basket with a built-in shirt and jacket and room for food and utensils. A nest for food and tableware and a shirt and jacket that leaves you ready to dress up once you reach your destination. The design combines a backpack and a basket using a rattan weave and leather, among other materials. Wanting to revive forgotten materials in his work, Henrik Vibskov chose rattan, a material that he hadn't worked with before. So he had to learn to work with rattan from scratch. Via WGSN-homebuildlife and Danish Crafts.
