Tree time

Design: Treetime

Treetime is a simple product for use in the primary school classroom or at home for children aged 3+years old. Recognising that much of a child’s early learning involves the tree Babs Zwanink created the elegant plywood tree for a play environment.
The tree echos the simple drawings created by children and in doing so manage to have an appealing aesthetic language.
The design can be used as a simple screen between children without creating a feeling of isolation, but can also be used to hang a line to hold paintings or projects that the children have created.
After all the classroom activity the children can just sit around it for a picnic or a story.
