Sloop, cradle

Yamakawa 2018

Yamakawa is the first manufacturer of wicker in Japan, with more than 60 years of history. Wicker is an ecofriendly material par excellence in its raw state made by hand using old tecniques.

“We worked on the lightness and simplicity of the material, exploring new typology of object like a cradle. Sloop is a rocking cradle that adapts to the child’s growth, with the base and basket coming apart and changing function. The basket becomes an enveloping armchair, while the base turns into a treasure chest or a toy sailing boat”. MRI
