The idea of the Paper Basket is quite simple. A solid base connected to the top ring by fourteen vertical slats. All components are made of solid wood.

The top ring is particularly interesting as the original drawing for the Paper Basket shows a laminated circular construction. This same idea was implemented more than forty years later in the production of the Circle Chair.

However, the Paper Baskets made for Aarhus townhall did not make use of this construction. Instead they were made of several sections of solid wood joined together.

This discrepancy between the drawing and the products based on it demonstrates the complex challenges of such a laminated ring construction. This challenge was finally overcame with the making of the Circle Chair in 1986.
