"little Nest" (Cradle-Baby Bed) by oszkar vagi
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Baby, Kids' and Children's Products Design Award Winner
inspired by the cocoon of the silkworm that is void of every unnecessary detail, but still ensuring perfect safety and gentle protection to its inhabitants. Natural materials and handmade quality are to ensure the best rest of the child sleeping in this cradle.
Shaped out of one single wool felt the cradle hugs around the baby as a protective shell taking care of it's peaceful rest. The cradle once it is hanged reacts to every little move of the child and sways it gently. This gives the baby a very similar feeling that it enjoyed prior to its birth. Due to perfectly simple geometry, 100% natural materials and the single-point suspension, babies can enjoy gentle care very similar to what they experienced prior to their birth.
