Thecraft Design Lab was  the Romanian brand invited to attend the Florence Design Week 2013. The event was dedicated to young designers and projects that use recycled materials or support an environmentally friendly attitude in design.

„Life of a Dream – a chair fantasy ” is the project prepared for Florence Design Week 2013, aims to tell the story of forgotten dreams and abandoned identities, in a changing post communistic reality of Romania. Mixing traditions, memories, nostalgia and hope, is the Life of a Dream that dares not to leave us, but to come true.
