Description from the designer
Children’s product developed in natural cork, through technical innovation of craft production. Cork is agglomerated with solvent-free, non-toxic materials; both are suitable for children and then used the traditional technique of turning machinery, thus projected as an exportable product. For this project we used tools like business model canvas and pivot with the user and purchaser.
In this way, with the properties of the material and the limits of the technique, leads to the form, which responds to the constant movement of a kid between 2 and 6 years old.
