Seriously. Haven't seen it for a while, even though it was one of the first things I ever found for Daddy Types [alas, a few months too late for our own crib-buying]. But the more I think about it, the more I really like Piet Hein Eek's kids' furniture, which is pieced together by hand in his workshop using reclaimed wood. It's the antithesis of sleek, factory-perfect luxury, and it expands the concept of artisanal production, even as it challenges typical ideas of craftsmanship.
Let's just hope he's drawing on a rich Dutch construction industry legacy of no lead paint and well-sanded edges.
There's an interview/factory visit with Eek [Hein Eek?] in Icon Magazine, the issue with the self-proclaimed jetset "hermit" and insufferable pompous ass Philippe Starck on the cover.
