The Fat Lip


Availability: In stock

In the first of an ongoing collaboration with Bodj, Chris Jackson has designed a simple log basket using local sustainable materials and craft-based manufacturing techniques.

Doing away with the traditional notion of a handle, the oversize rim of 'Fat Lip' can be grabbed anywhere, resulting in an ergonomically preferable design solution, whilst the light weight steel frame within the basket provides a splash of contemporary colour.

Fat Lip was a finalist in the Utilita Manifesta 'Fight Poverty' design competition. It was also awarded Bronze in New Zealand’s BEST awards.

The frames are made in Phnom Penh by a small ironworking initiative and the rattan is hand woven in the town of Kampong Thom. In the forests where rattan grows, its economic value is helping protect forest land, by providing an alternative to loggers who forgo timber logging and harvest rattan canes instead. The Fat Lip was designed by Chris Jackson
