'97 metre veneer - baskets' are wooden baskets, each having its own unique colour gradient.

With a specially constructed machine, an estimated 97 metre long oak-veneer-strip is slowly glued and coiled up around a wooden base to form a basket. During its production a marker draws onto the wooden veneer and continuously fades out leaving a colour gradient on the basket. From very intense colouring at the base to just the idea of the marker's rest, each basket represents all intensities of one hue.

The baskets are available in two different sizes. As there is always the same amount of veneer used this means: big and low, slim and high Each size will be produced in 138 individual colours. Starting with Canary Yellow up to Dark Bark brown, from Prussian Blue to Special Black, every basket in its special colour.
