There is an interplay between the candidness and covertness with which people treat possessions in their homes, and Net by Linn Kandel highlights this relationship by offering a place to hide items where they may still be visible. Unlike a shelf which exposes its contents or a cabinet or drawer which hide theirs, this pair of peculiar hampers conceals only subtly.

Stiff wire frames embody a certain rigidity that is elegantly softened by the application of stretched nylon fabric. Graceful contours are created, and with them, a diaphanous cover over deep polyamide pockets inside.

Net by Linn Kandel is meant to be placed upon a coffee table where it may absorb the clutter on the surface. Assorted articles are well stored in these abstract baskets where they can be kept close at hand and vaguely discernible by the eyes.
