This presentation is a part od smART XTRA! Programme series.

Kristi Kuusk is combining traditional home textiles with technical innovations. By doing this, a simple bedtime story can be taken to a totally new level! Minimalistic childrenswear klikkklakk are inspired by the best of Scandinavian design. Children can freely combine all changeable details according to their mood, transforming everyday boring dressing-up into an exciting adventure. FELTIVE-elements, made of recycled textiles, can be used to build whatever you want, startig with dogs and cats and ending with space-ships – the sky is the limit. HÖP books and workbooks invite children to solve problems and find solutions, to plan, learn and play. One of the books has also been translated into Hungarian. Soft toys by Trallibussikoondis give you a possibility to hug a trolleybus. Projects of social design by students from Tartu Art College and Estonian Art Academy have been born in cooperation with children’s medical institutions.
