O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are your corrugated branches!
London-based designer Giles Miller, world renowned for his cardboard based designs and work for clients including Stella McCartney, Sheraton Hotel Edinburgh and Selfridges, has been commissioned by London Design Museum to design a set of bespoke cardboard Christmas trees to be sold exclusively through the Museum’s shop during the festive season.
In addition, Giles has created an extra special tree to be decorated by illustrator Daniel Heath, which is set to hang in the museum’s public atrium. The tree stands six meters tall and is possibly the largest of its kind! Made from 3,600 individually cut and handmade pieces, the tree is in with a chance of securing the title of ‘World’s Tallest Cardboard Christmas Tree’ after The Design Museum submitted an application to the Guinness Book of World Records.
We imagine these trees will sell out pretty fast so if you want to get your hands on one then head over to The Design Museum Shop now before they’re all gone!
Design Museum Christmas Tree will be available to view from 2nd December- 5th January 2012 at London Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD.
