The Quirky Companions – playful designer children’s furniture by Studio Josip Gotler (3+)


The magical pieces of furniture that the Croatian designer Josip Gotler creates in his studio make you wonder if you just stepped into a fairy tale. The wardrobe looks like an accordion and the shelf dances like a real twisted dancer. His colorful furniture is both fanciful and functional: Expressive lighthouse has many drawers while the Skinny Apple is a unique wardrobe and shelf in one. Each piece is handmade in very small batches using certified birch plywood and non toxic water-based paints. The joy their designer had in transforming objects of daily use into magical characters straight out of a fairy tale is obvious every time you look at them.
