    Emilie Voirin: Minimal Nativity Set

Product Design: Emilie Voirin keeps it simple with her Minimal Nativity Set

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The Christmas nativity scene encompasses a great deal of efforts; from the Home Alone diorama to my mum’s oddly idiosyncratic collection of figures (there’s a kangaroo ffs). But my new favourite entry comes from Royal College of Art graduate Emilie Voirin who’s cut through all the usual cultural, sartorial and manger-based confusion with her fabulous Minimal Nativity Set. Simple wooden domino shaped blocks with clear character inscriptions mean you can wave goodbye to sacrilegious mistaken identity for ever (i.e. Is that one of the kings? No it’s an angel…). I imagine you’ll all be wanting to buy me a present so consider this firmly on my list (but I hope someone has drawn up a spereadsheet to prevent duplications).
