Completed projects

Project Tutu
Client Devoto
Year 2016
Description Design of baby cradle made of flat materials for production of CNC technology. The cradle itself is designed as a folding system, with no joints. This solution allows easy assembly / disassembly and transport of the cradle, always in a completely flat package. The cradle is made up of five flat parts, which are held only thanks to special locks and grooves. This allows the cradle to be easily and quickly disassembled / folded in one person only when you need it on the go. The inspiration for this design was the birth of Roman's daughter Greta.
