Interior designers Carla Barconte and Ludmila Drudi, of Estudio Plök, and architect Mariana Paccieri worked together to create a fun solution for kids: #thebearscave. They designed the tech-free bedroom for last September’s Casa Foa 2018, Argentina’s most prestigious architecture and interior design trade show.
Natural materials such as wood and cork bring children back to their environmental roots. The design team playfully transformed the idea of bunk beds; a ladder leads from the bottom to the top bunk which is hidden by the wooden structure. Painted on top a mountain in the back right corner of the room, a giant white bear stoically acts as guardian angel with its yellow scarf blowing in the wind.
