  • K-Block - stackable chair for children

    When Designer El Ultimo Grito in the year 2000 presented the K-block at the Bloomberg gallery in London, the concept was simple: A modular object which on its own acts as a stool or extra seating that when not in use can be stacked in an sculptural way. Combinations of the K-block can be used to resolve different furniture requirements. But most importantly it is an object that could be used by both adults and children in their own way!!

    PICK-UP

    “When my son took his first steps and grabbed a stool to help him, I immediately saw what was needed. PICK-UP is a combined chair, walking aid and transport facility. Now that my son can walk without difficulty, the PICK-UP has become his car, loaded with all his books. And when he has friends around to visit, he takes them for a ride in his PICK-UP”.
    These are the words of designer Alfredo Häberli, master of multi-functionalism with a mission to make everyday life easier. When Alfredo became a father he suddenly asked himself the question, “Where are the exclusive objects designed just for kids and their needs?”. That question led to the design of PICK-UP in co-operation with OFFECCT. Although PICK-UP was originally designed for kids, it has a character that appeals to adults as well. The reason for this may lie in its proportions, its colours, or simply the fact that it looks funny, rather than in its function as a chair, a walking aid or a book/magazine holder.The seat and back of the PICK-UP are made in cold foam with flameproof fibre. It is upholstered in fabric and has a wooden frame. The wheels are in metal and rubber.

  • oeuvre of uncertainty - or just a kool kite

    Patrik Fredrikson´s designs are unconventional poetic compounds and express an exceptional sensibility to notions of usage and perception. His oeuvre isn´t simply contemporary, it rather combines a strict yet curious modern disposition with the bravery to employ chance and uncertainty.

    Patrick Frederikson entwarf diesen Drachen mit einer Menge tiefsinniger Hintergedanken. Sein Oeuvre eignet sich hervorragend für kleine Piepmätze um mit diesem grossen Raubvogel den Spatzen ein wenig Angst einzujagen.

  • Playing Ceasefire - Waffenstillstand

    Danish Guardsmen
    The famous Danish guardsmen have their roots back in 1942, and have almost become a symbol of Denmark. Among danish people, the wooden guardsmen are very popular as gifts to people living abroad. The wooden guardsmen represent the highest quality workmanship and are decorated with pure gold leaf. They are available in heights of 1 metre and 22 cms. As a pacifist, I prefer those to the ones in lifesize...and they are perfect to play ceasefire!

  • Magic Garden

    What is the magic Garden?
    It is a really cool, easy to do project which fascinates children of all ages, and adults too. Here is a quick overview!
    You construct the Magic Garden from the special cardboard cut-outs which comes in the box. Making the mountain, trees and shrubbery is quite simple. Most children over age 7 will be able to do it with little, or no adult assistance. Children ages 3 to 6 will need some adult assistance.

    Was ist Magic Garden?
    Zwei Pappmasché-Bäume die zusammengesteckt werden, 4 Stück Pappe für die Gärten und ein großer blauer Pappkarton aus dem später der Fujiyama mit Schnee entsteht.
    Die Pappkartons werden zusammengesteckt und auf den Boden gestellt. Für jede einzelne Pappe liegt der Packung eine Flüssigkeit mit Kristallen bei, die vorsichtig in die Vertiefungen des Bodens geschüttet wird.
    Schon nach wenigen Stunden sehen Sie wie Bäume enstehen, der Garten zu blühen und zu wachsen beginnt und der Schnee den Berg einhüllt.
    Nach rund 12 Stunden ist das Werk vollendet und Sie haben Ihren eigenen japanischen Garten. Magic, aber wahr.

  • Flensted Mobiles

    Mobiles are traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe. The tradition is today continued by their son Ole and his wife Aase.
    Their great success comes from the timelessness of the wide range of mobiles, from abstract to representional subjects.

    This soccerball is manufactured by the world leading ball maker Molten, which also manufactures the official soccerballs of A.C. Parma or A.C. Chievo Verona of Serie A, Italy. So it can be used as a actual soccerball, or it can be enjoyed as an art object.

  • Oma Else

    Oma else is my grandma and she knows great stories.
    Unfortunately, i can´t translate this so this is only to germanspeaking kids..

    Himpelchen und pimpelchen die gingen auf einen berg
    Himpelchen war ein heinzelmann und pimpelchen war ein zwerg.
    Sie blieben lange da oben sitzen und wackelten mit ihren zipfelmützen
    Doch nach vielen vielen wochen sind sie in den berg hineingekrochen.
    Dort schlafen sie nun in guter ruh, pass mal auf und hör fein zu:
    Und als sie wieder aufgewacht da haben beide tüchtig gelacht!
    Himpelchen sagt: ´ich bau mir ein haus!´
    Pimpelchen sagt: ´ich auch ich auch!´
    Himpelchen sagt: mein haus ist nicht grade. pimpelchen sagt: ´mein haus ist krumm!´
    Da kam ein grosser pustewind und pustet alles fort geschwind.
    Dann kam der liebe sonnenschein und macht das häuschen wieder fein.
