An iconic Ohio building shaped like a basket is looking for a new owner. This giant Longaberger Co. building is up for sale after 20 years as the headquarters of the Longaberger Co. company. The “Big Basket” as it’s referred to by employees often features on “strangest” builiding’s lists and the Kansas City Star said it is “considered one of the strangest, craziest office buildings in the world”. The odd design was dreamed up by the founder, Dave Longaberger, when he became irritated during a building planning meeting, saw one of his firm’s baskets and told designers, “make it look exactly like this”. The remaining employees will be moving to the company’s manufacturing facility in nearby Frazeysburg, Ohio. 15th July, 2016.
