Matali Crasset Kids Desk For Balouga


Don't talk to me about Philippe Starck right now. I don't know why, but I just don't have the patience for him. I'm happy with the kid's toilet, though, so I'll leave it at that.

Matali Crasset, on the other hand... I'm just glad to see someone survived working in the Starckian Empire with her sense of individual vision intact. Fortunately for the world of kids design, the sweet boutique Balouga opened up last year on the same street as Crasset's studio. And Paris being the small town that it is, it wasn't long--just a few months, it seems--before Balouga was conspiring with Crasset to create an exclusive design for them.

The result was debuted last week at the Paris furniture show. The children's desk has a kind of fun, Seussianic geometry which gives kids all the cubbies and nooks they want to stuff their stuff in. I'm interested in seeing how it works for kids "2-10," as they promise; because right now, it looks kind of tall for a toddler.

Check in with Balouga for more details on production and pricing [balouga.fr]

Maybe the cubes go towards the floor with the poles up for toddlers?
