The Three Bears

The Three Bears are designed as furniture for children.

Father Bear, Mother Bear and Baby Bear, can be nested and children can sit on top or crawl underneath. Felt is used as a sustainable material with soft and natural qualities. The shape is held together with metal rods.

We were delighted to be invited to the Vitra showroom in Clerkenwell to see the unveiling of a new piece from our friend Cristiana Ionescu who exhibited with us at the Bargehouse back in September and caused quite a stir at the interiors show in Birmingham last month.

The Three Bears was awarded the audience prize at the Vitra showroom last night and we were very happy to see Cristiana collect her prize.

The show is a collaboration between Vitra and Bucks New University and features both graduating Masters students and those just starting the Masters course. The brief is to imagine a piece inspired by the work of Charles and Ray Eames who’s designs are still in production by Vitra and are an inspiration to generations of furniture designers.
