Danish Inspired Christmas trees with a hint of Oceania

I’m loving these Christmas trees! Four design graduate students from the Corcoran College of Art + Design reinterpreted Danish design icons by putting an inventive spin on the classic icon of the season – the Christmas tree. The exhibition is part of the fifth year of Creative Christmas for the The Royal Embassy of Denmark in Washington DC (USA).

The exhibit explores the inspiration from classic Danish modern design from the 50s and 60s. Given the task of reinterpreting the classic Christmas tree with a Danish modern twist, design students used fiber glass, metal, plastic, and wood materials to merge the traditions of the holiday with the design era.

This one’s my favorite! I’m so going to try and recreate this one next year.
