'Wild Feast' picnic basket by Neri & Hu

The Shanghai-based design duo create a boldly Chinese interpretation of a picnic basket for our Wallpaper* Handmade with Jaguar exhibition

Wallpaper* Handmade (opens in new tab) is the magazine’s groundbreaking exhibition dedicated to the marriage of craftsmanship and design. Each year, Wallpaper* commissions select designers, makers and manufacturers to create one-off items of furniture, fittings, fashions, food and more.

In 2013 the Shanghai-based design duo Neri & Hu created a distinctly modern and boldly Chinese interpretation of a very traditional British item - the picnic basket. Made from precision-engineered carbon fibre, their beautifully conceived and realised 'Wild Feast' basket displays a sensitive and intelligent understanding of the contemporary Jaguar aesthetic.
