‘pit stop’ by dutch designer bertjan pot is a tire-shaped beanbag produced in one single process. the textile weave is created by knitting a pattern that has been specifically developed to create a shape of a car tire, allowing it to be produced in one piece. even details such as the tread profile, sidewalls and integrated logo are knitted in a single process, producing no leftover waste material. the object seams and fabric are fleece backed, producing a ‘sitting ring’ made from synthetic fibre, and measures a diameter of 80 cm and a height of 30cm. richard lampert at imm cologne 2011 ‘pit stop’ acts as a beanbag chair photo: richard beck, murr

swedish designer monica förster has created ‘wonder box’ for the collection. the table, bench, storage unit at first glance appears as a monochrome cube. however, it is a table and matching bench that perfectly fit into one another to form a block. on one side, the rotating tabletop can be used as a writing desk, while the other has a surface finish which allows it to function as a blackboard. a drawer offers storage space for writing instruments or toys. the table top also has a groove in which to keep crayons and other writing utensils. overall, ‘wonder box’ measures 50 x 70 cm.

‘tur tur’ is a high chair designed by german born eric degenhardt. the chair appears to be huge, however it is only when you look at it more closely that you realize it offers children both protection and a nice overview of their surroundings. the high chair can be seen as a bit of a ‘chill-out’ zone for its occupant. it features areas for storage, as the steps are equipped with shelves of varying sizes.
