Studio Mutant

It has been quite a while that I did not share anything here from Sweden. Let’s change that quickly and present you Studio Mutant.

MUTANT’s products are a mixture between toys and furnishings. The perfect fit for homes where adults and children share time and space. All products are toys and design objects at the same time. Appealing to the little ones with precious details and shapes and the parents for the choice of material, function and expression.

Everything is produced in Sweden from natural materials!

The frog, for example, is soft and cozy to play with. You can hug it or throw it around. And it has a weight in the back which makes it balance well on the bed frame or on the shelf.

The swan is super versatile as well. You can sit on it. Or put it on your head.  And when the children are done with playing it is a beautiful accessory in the living room.

I really like the idea of intersecting toys with design objects. Without loosing the ‘play’ factor…

Are these the best wooden toys ever?

best wooden toys
Today, wooden toys are getting a whole new meaning. I mean you know that I love a good high quality wooden toy. I have written about it many times. But when I came across James Paulius it felt like a new world of wood and toys opened. James is a Brooklyn-based designer and he designs products that integrate people with their environment.

Promoting creativity, curiosity and joy. I was definitely very curious to find out more and felt lots of joy when I did.

So are these the coolest wooden toys?

Sky Villages is an interactive installation that invites children to build clusters of airborne villages on the wall. These villages are made of tessellating units that interlock in countless ways to create various structures.
When a unit no longer fits the particular needs of its location, it can be moved elsewhere for a new family to reside in. Constantly evolving, these structures accommodate the ever-changing tendencies of humanity and nature.

I would love to build my very own sky village.

Build the world you want to see with Blockitecture, a set of architectural building blocks. Use the cantilever and nest hexagonal blocks to create towers, cities and dwellings. And the Hexagonal blocks will nest together in various formations. Counterbalancing each other and creating unique cantilevers found in modern and contemporary architecture.

The first in March 2018 {Friday List}

LOURS-PARIS
Wow! It is March already, it is snowing outside my window while writing this and I have not done a Friday list for a while now. Sounds familiar… I know. I have the feeling that I always write this now when I start a new list.

But it also means that I have some really cool stuff to share with you! Interiors, small brands with big hearts and lovely products. A very cool play kitchen and a new brand with rad Vintage styles for little people.

There are also two features with me, if you are interested.

Let’s start:

My white cup

My white cup
Oh hello Monday. I am still in London today and my head is full of fantastic ideas and beautiful things I saw so far.
And how could we start a week better than with some crisp and fresh goodies.

Just recently I stumbled upon this beautiful etsy shop called My White Cup. Run by Orinta Gaileviciene out of Vilnius, Lithuania .

‘I am a lover of the colour white, light tones and shades. I even drink my tea from a white cup only.
That’s how I got the idea to unite all my work under one name – MY WHITE CUP.’

These Little Treasures – Wish Pixies

These Little Treasures - Wish Pixies
Just before Christmas we received a little box all the way from Australia. And when we opened it we met four little friends. Pixies to be precise.
The box come from the memory makers, whimsy creators and childhood dreamers of These Little Treasures.

‘The new range of Wish Pixies that we have recently released expand on these values and aim to help children overcome the challenges of growing up. Each doll has a tiny Pixie Pocket on its back which can be used by the parent to leave messages of encouragement to the child.’

These cute little friends are made of cotton/linen fabric and are printed from an original water colour painting. Sweet little cotton jersey dangly legs, fine tulle wings, felt ears and other exquisite details.

They are really a little magical and a lovely little gift!

For Josephine we found a Pixie Bebe that we had to wake up. It was sleeping, probably all the way from Australia, in it’s little bed.

Ah, I love little things like this. Beautiful whimsical and perfect to sit on a shelf or chair next to your bed. For sweeter dreams and big wishes!
