“We are not always responsible for what happens around us. But we can often take responsibility for finding a solution. That’s what happened to us when Storm Vaia hit the Dolomites. We decided to create something new, something positive for the area, the communities and the people. We focussed on what is important: //Face what matters// means exactly that.”
At the end of October 2018, Storm Vaia brought the Dolomites to their knees: in just a few hours, 42 million trees fell due to relentless winds and devastating rain.
Federico, Paolo and Giuseppe from “Vaia” decided to take action: They used the wood from the fallen trees to create the Vaia Cubes, passive speakers for smartphones that produce a warm and deep sound.
For every one-of-a-kind design item sold, a new tree is planted in the Dolomites.
