Mr Maria is a Dutch design studio based in Amsterdam. The studio was founded by Jannes Hak and Lennart Bosker. Mr Maria is a brand with a playful artistic character. Rather than a clear-cut philosophy the designers have an open-minded view that translates into concept and form. Mr Maria aims to create eye-catching products for children of all ages. Shaping clouds into pure, clean and warm creations is their main goal as designers.
“We don’t make products, we light up stars”
The modernist Mr Maria collection features a cool range of kid and earth-friendly designer lamps. All lamps are LED powered (except Miffy Dream), providing an energy efficient, long lasting, and safe source of lighting for any kid’s décor.

One of our favorite new exhibitor at this year’s ICFF is the Portuguese design firm Two.Six.
“We live intensely. And life has returned to us the intensity we put into each project. We like color. But we like simple lines, functionality and high quality, too. We appreciate the detail as those who appreciate art. And we find art in the ideas, thoughts, sketches, which are passing through here.”

This adorable toy storage by Serbian designer Ana Babic was inspired by playgrounds and their cheerful atmosphere. The goal was to transcend this feeling into interiors, using an object that invites you to play.
Play is a storage box system, consisting of a wheel construction that carries 5 wooden boxes with different color accents.
Make a change every day! My kids would love this one.

The Lullaby Factory is an amazing design project by hackney-based Studio Weave that is near and dear to my heart. In my previous life, I worked in a hospital with ill children, so I can understand first hand the wonderful impactful a project such as the Lullaby Factory has on hospitalized children and their families. There always seem to be those awkward spaces around hospitals where you look out the window into a small dingy courtyard or emergency generator. Well, Studio Weave, along with Structure Workshop, AB3 Workshops and Jessica Curry Studio, capitalized on one of these spaces located in a rear courtyard of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and transformed it into a place blossoming with imagination and creativity. This is a secret and beautiful space that can only be viewed from inside the hospital and its song can only be heard through a few special pipes or by tuning into its special radio frequency. It is a place that sparks the imagination and supports the human spirit while bringing comfort to those in need.
