Claridge hotel has announced the unveiling of its 2016 Christmas Tree designed by Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson in collaboration with renowned British set designer Michael Howells.

Stepping through Claridge's revolving doors brings you into an immersive festive installation that features a magical, snow-covered forest. Four-metre high light boxes glow with black and white photographic images of snow covered silver birch trees, set on a pure white floor. Against this backdrop, rise cast models of Scots pine, layered with both natural and photographed silver birch and fir trees, reaching to a canopy of natural green pine.

“There are few things more pure and beautiful than nature, so that was our starting point, layering various iterations of organic forms with technology. Our aim was to create an all-enveloping magical experience that celebrates our enormous respect for tradition while recognising our excitement about the future and things to come."
Sir Jony Ive and Marc Newson

Ive, respect bro, but maybe you should check that battery case instead. You clearly have something to do at home.

What? Nature? This look more unrealistic than the over saturated neon icons on the iPhone. Designers should recognize their limits. This is simply not valuable. Waste of their name. A joke of the Christmas spirit, which totally outside of this place.
