Jan van der Lande in the land of small design.
I was often asked by ICFF attendees what it was we did to be a part of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Consider this. If you were to go home, sit on your favorite chair, and look around the room, what would you notice? All the small stuff. That’s what we do. We design the small things.
We have a calendar that will literally never be out of date. We have wind-up toys that are as fun for adults as for kids. We have a cuckoo clock that doesn’t cuckoo, a crow bar for opening bottles, a globe without a single country’s name on it. These are the kind of things we make.
It’s our hope that a Kikkerland product will someday end up in your home and that you’ll look at it, and use it, and come to think of it as a favorite thing…along with that chair you love.
