JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER: Best Interiors Product Design (Soft Furnishings)
WHO: Forivor – The Space Above the Ground Collection
WHAT: An organic cotton, nature inspired reversible quilt featuring magical hand painted scenes on each side to stimulate conversation, imaginations and dreams. Accompanied by an illustrated story book featuring the wildlife in the design, exploring themes of metamorphosis, bird migration, pollination and the cosmos.
WHY: This quilt is the stuff that dreams are made of – quite literally. The stunning illustrations that grace each side are epic in scale and detail and really are something different and special in what can sometimes feel like a sea of sameness. The designers wanted to create a safe-haven for storytelling, with magical creatures as nighttime companions and our judges all felt that this aim was more than met.
