Matevž Klopčič, s. p.,
for the Vita cradle & the Scorpio lamp
Commission’s rationale: Innovative design with a sincere approach. The story of the cradle is intertwined with nature, not only with the material but also with the movement that pays attention to the baby. With each movement, the cradle submits to the child. It is an element that is designed like tree branches and a nest. All the assemblies are properly thought out and precisely designed, and the design itself is pleasing to the eye and functional. Complementing the wooden assembly from a user perspective, they provide cushioning elements and soft linings that round out the design itself. Intended for circular shaping of wooden forms, the Scorpio lamp is a complement to home products.
