The Wave Tree – art created from thermo wood. 

Designer: Fred Zara and Gia Zapattini |Perkins + Will architecture firm
Sponsor: Smarter Choice Surfaces, Llc | Timura Wood

The Festival of the Trees is an annual fundraising event coordinated by the department of interior design at Florida International University. 

The South Florida architectural and design community is supporting this festival with sponsorship. The funds will be used to promote high-quality interior design studies at Florida International University and will also support talented students.

Every year, designers and design companies create and build pieces of art, which are then judged against various categories at a major gala event before being auctioned off.

This year’s theme for the pieces of art was “timeless design”. The piece is meant to be creative, thematically suited to the Festival of Trees and does not necessarily have to be a tree. The other criteria were:  most elegant, most colourful, most sustainable, most creative, most illuminating, most progressive, most whimsical, most topical, most animated.

Designers Fred Zara and Gia Zapattini from the architecture firm Perkins+Will created the piece of art entitled “The Wave Tree” for the festival. The tree is 1.5 m high and consists of 96 wooden leaves of different sizes, which were hand-made by timura. In order to enhance the leaves’ structure even further, they are illuminated from below by two LED lights integrated in the base of the object.

The two designers won an award at the 31st Festival of Trees on 16 November 2017 in Miami, Florida with this piece of art.
