Product description

The Tree is a space divider designed by Professor Eero Aarnio to be unveiled during the Milan Furniture Fair 2008. Intended for restaurants and other public spaces, the Tree is also a sculpture, and will surely find its way into private homes, just as many other products designed by Professor Aarnio have done. The Tree is made of techno-recyclable polyethylene. Eero Aarnio describes the birth of the Tree as follows: "The Tree is like many other products I have designed - part functional object, part sculpture. It functions as a space divider and a decoration, of course, but clever users will surely find other uses for it, such as a coat rack. "For me, the tree has always been the tree of paradise. Someone once wondered why it doesn't have any apples, but that is something we should ask Eve about." This tree also bears fruit, as the proceeds of each Tree are used to plant four fruit trees in the Peruvian Andes as a part of World Vision Finland's regional development project to fight and prevent erosion.
