Emma Olbers’s modern reinterpretation of the classic fireside wood basket provides an elegant storage solution for firewood.
This elegant yet unobtrusive design is crafted from steel and is coated in paint from AkzoNobel, a company that can trace its history back to 1646 at the Swedish Bofors forge. Its powder-coated paint is free from harmful substances, minimising environmental impact.
The leather accents are crafted in vegetable tanned leather from the Swedish tannery Tärnsjö: the only certified organic tannery in the world, which has been manufacturing leather since 1873. The design is finished with custom brass screws in a nod to traditional brass fireplace accessories.
Swedish designer Emma Olbers prides herself on having an eco-heart. Since completing a course at the Sustainable Fashion Academy in 2009 she has endeavoured to craft products that are as environmentally friendly as possible.
