Filigree tree is handmade in wood and produced in Trine Charlotte Find’s own workshop in Denmark. The tree can be used as a Christmas tree in cramped spaces, in the hallway or in the children’s room, as a display for advents gifts, for decoration purposes in shops or in hospitals and dentists’ offices, which require clinical hygiene. The tree is sustainable and aesthetic. It can be disassembled and reused year after year. Wood is cut into various lengths to serve as the branches of the tree. Next, holes are drilled into the tree trunk. Each tree is assembled before packaging for quality assurance. Since wood is a living material, the challenge is to make sure that the branches fit snugly yet not so snugly that the tree cannot be disassembled when it is not in use.

Trine Charlotte Find
b. 1974, Danish architect maa, designer
Trine Charlotte Find graduated as an architect from the Aarhus School of Architecture in 2001. She mainly works with wood, including pine, ash, birch and oak. Her working process often begins with hand-drawn sketches and continues with numerous 1:1 working models. Trine Charlotte Find bases her work on the tenet “keep it simple”, which to her describes a process that requires just as much time and effort as something that seems and is complicated. She draws inspiration from nature, travels and her children. A key aspect of Find’s design is the reshaping of objects she experiences in everyday life and in nature.
