Willows, in the form of baskets as well as building material, have been part of human culture for thousands of years. The natural material quality, combined with the elaborate structure that has been developed into rich ornamentation, has a special aesthetic quality, which predestines the willows particularly for structures in landscape and horticulture.

Cradle to Cradle: 100% renewable and 100% recycling.

Goal of "Willow" is to use a structure consisting of one hundred percent renewable and reusable materials. The very simple design task is an ideal application for the Cradle to Cradle strategy, whereby the development of products is so that all the raw materials necessary for their use can be completely recycled for the production of equivalent products. This way, resource consumption is reduced to zero in the long term.

Important for a complete recycling is the easy separability of the structural components into pure resources. That is why “Willow” is joined exclusively with detachable plug and screw connections, which allow a separation of resources after the use cycle.
