Tree Tactile "Book" for the blind by Feelform Jan 20, 2017


Educational tool for blind children and their educators with the shape of. Left space to 3D print or stick braille letters of your language. Moreover we have added the tree alone if you want to experiment in other ways with it, or as we propose that you would glue it on wood or plexiglass. We have discovered VI persons love it especially wood. Last but not least we have added a hole in order to tie multiple of them with a small rope, since we have more of them to come.

Feelform is an initiative supported by the Angelopoulos CGIU.

We design and 3D print innovative products for the blind. We design and 3D print innovative products for the blind. Our goal in Feelform is to stop the exclusion of the visually impaired from public space and provide the means for equality in education.

Overview and Background

The tree (in its deconstructed shape) educational material for the blind.

A tactile representation of the outline of a tree in order to allow blind children and adults to realize the minimalist shape of a coniferous tree.
