afilii is organising an inspiring booth for kids from 0 to 13 with design toys and furniture from international designers.
In cooperation with Noa Haim from collective paper aesthetics it will cover 150sqm and be situated in hall 10.1. .
The fair expects more than 22.000 international professional visitors.

For the first time ever this year a special exhibition called “future of kids design”, which will present futuristic prototypes for children, is going to be held at the international trade fair.
This special exhibition seeks children’s furniture and toys that are futuristic – both in terms of their function and design, as well as regarding the implementation and use of the materials.

Future of kids design

Paul & Paula blog: afilli

You remember my post about afilii and their great exhibition sofr upcoming Kind+Jugend?

Kind+Jugend opens its doors today and if you can you should really go!

Especially if you are curious what the future will bring us! Afilii created a booth called „future of kids design“  with ten forward-looking prototypes on furniture and toys for kids.

These are developped by international designers. These 10 prototypes from 4 different countries were chosen by a jury from 51 submissions.

During the show the jury {furniture manufacturer Breuyn, PAIDI and Pinolino} will choose one winner who they will follow through the process of the product launch. The winner will also be able to exhibit at Kind+Jugend in 2015.

The “future of kids design” stand is to find: Halle 10.1, C-080

You see there is lots on the table and to get you a little teaser I am showing you a few of the finalist here and now:

Bed & House – Innoarea (Spain)

Once the baby is too big for the crib you can use the sides as a roof and make a play house out of it! Very clever and useful for many years…

cradle me – Inka Dropmann (Germany)
Paul & Paula blog: inka cradle
Another clever idea on how to use a crib. Split in half you have two kids rocking chairs!

Labludo – Tobias Lindenbeck (Germany)

Paul & Paula blog: Tobias Lindeman
Hang you table on the wall and only put it together when needed. Easy and a good idea for small spaces.

MAVALA – Anna Licata (Italy)
Paul & Paula blog: Anna Licata
Table and stools are covered with magnetic paint so kids can draw on them and stick magnets. Pure design to fit into any family home.

Sleeping Book – IKSK Design (France)
Paul & Paula blog: iksk//bookbed
A giant book with rainbow coloured pages and when open you will find a place to sleep.

These are only 5 from the 10 finalist but out of these – who would you vote for?
