Wallace / Laundry-Basket


Wallace is a combination between a portable laundry basket and a laundry rack. It is designed to fit in single households with little living space.
The construction is made out of waterproof wood and it is covered with a cotton fabric.
In a short action you can pull out two separate components, which are hidden in the wooden construction. This way you can easily transform the laundry basket into a laundry rack.
The size of Wallace is 40cm x 40cm x 70cm when it’s closed and 161cm x 40cm x 72cm when it’s open.
