Barknest Round Basket


“Barknest” basket is an object that, in name and form, recalls a cosy nest with rounded walls for holding and safeguarding precious contents. The highly expressive design of this object enhances any room where it is displayed. Designed by Michel Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui, the “Bark” collection was inaugurated in 2015 with the namesake centrepiece.

The designers drew their inspiration from their home, Casa Boucquillon: a place for experimentation, meditation and work where they live in sync with nature. The perforated pattern of the “Bark” range recalls the bark on the trees around the house. The result is a strongly poetic collection where every individual object proves to be, either in shape or in function, in continuous and harmonious dialogue with nature.

The complicated metalwork that goes into making this collection demonstrates the skilled workmanship of the artisans in Alessi’s Italian factory.

Barknest is available in either 18/10 mirror polished stainless steel or steel coated with epoxy resin in black or white.
