trove is a self curated and narrated treasure chest for children’s most precious things. trove enables children to record a story to a precious object and then trigger the story when the object is played with. With support from leading adoption agency, Coram, this product aims to help children, especially those that have been adopted or are in care, understand who they are and to support them through times of change and uncertainty.

On Wednesday 6th at 4pm Chloe is hosting a workshop this is an amazing opportunity – space is very limited so you will need to get a ticket from here if you would like to come along.

trove was designed and created by Chloe Meineck, who runs Studio Meineck, a social design company that specialises in designing with people rather than for people. Working closely with charities, academics and arts organisations, we facilitate workshops with a view to giving a voice to vulnerable groups in society. Drawing on the discussions enabled by these workshops and an approach that blends craft, technology and social design, we work towards tackling the problems that these groups face by developing carefully considered products. The Studio was founded by designer and entrepreneur Chloe Meineck, who has developed this specialist approach to co-design on a number of design, craft and technology residencies, working in partnership with organisations such as the Design Museum, Crafts Council and KIITO in Japan.
