The Croatian Designers Society once again released its “Xmas Tree with Us” (“Bor s nama“) tender for the design of a completely different Christmas tree and other Christmas accoutrements. The exceptionally successful last year’s tender, as well as the sales exhibition Christmas Tree Super Store, gave the organizers impetus to turn this project into an annual event. The basic concept of the project and tender is to contemplate ecological and cultural aspects of Christmas tree trimming, related rituals and customs, and thus offer the general public unpretentious, intelligent, affordable and fun alternative solutions. The direct goal of this action is to encourage original Croatian design production and promote Croatian designers and artists.

*Boris”                                                                                         *Functional Surrogate of a Christmas tree

To point out as a reminder, last year’s tender winner was the work entitled “Boris” created by the Cuculić Studio, i.e. a team consisting of Vanja Cuculić, Maja Draganić, Romana Kajp, Goran Turković and Marko Šesnić. Click here to take a look at the other awarded works.

This year’s tender is open till November 25th 4:00 PM, which is the last deadline for submitting works.

We’re very much looking forward to fresh new ideas and originally envisioned Xmas trees in the Croatian designers’ interpretation and we wish successful sales to the realized works.
