Belgian Design Fair Whips Up Baby Holding Pen

interieur06_desnws.jpg

What to do with all the kids who might descend on Kortrijk for Interieur06, Belgian's national contemporary furniture and design expo? Easy.

Just grab some plywood and some kid-sized product from the exhibitors, add a thin cushion somewhere, scatter some crayons about--don't forget to dangle an electrical cord within easy reach--and you can hack together a vaguely Koolhaas-meets-Ikea play area/holding pen in no time.

FYI, those laminated foam mats folded into vaguely animal shapes are Animools by Feek. The Panton-lookin' chair is eluding me at the moment. [why can't I find it again?] That little green puppy is Eero Aarnio for Magis, and that yellow rocking slug is the Pippocampus, or Pippo for short.
