Träd is not only a storage system, Träd is a shelter – a personal space where children carry out their fantasies and games. A place that allows them to feel safe, to learn and to imagine. Think of it as their enchanted forest where they can dream of heroes and princesses and live a thousand and one adventures. Damn I want one already!
Träd, by designers Josué Gamonal and Vicente Porres (Madrid), won the Third Maria Martinez Otero Industrially-Produced Designer Furniture Award. The theme of this third edition was “The Child’s Universe” The judges agreed unanimously and pointed out that the project represent an innovative concept that broadens the typology of kid’s furniture, thanks to its references to nature and its playhouse and shelter-like quality. The judges also highlighted the simplicity and the presentation of the proposal, as well as its poetry not to mention how frackin’ sweet those illustrations are!
