Creativity and functionality lie at the heart of the IO Kids Design brand. Our designs combine simple and strict functionalism with playful and elegant aesthetic. After all we believe that little people like beautiful too!
We like to think our pieces are strong-willed and make a statement to inspire, surprise and delight each child and give them their own space in which they in turn may create and dream.
We are an international team of designers, architects, furniture lovers and cabinet makers. We may be small, but we have big dreams. We aspire to be among the leaders in the transformation of contemporary children’s furniture by creating inspiring and bold design. We want children not to just see an object for its obvious function but rather to imagine the possibilities.
At IO Kids Design we carry a deep desire to encourage each child’s unique vision and perspective that will spark their own imagination and curiosity. By offering distinctive, innovative and sustainable design our aim is to make furniture that will be treasured for generations to come.
IO is part of the solar system and one of Jupiter’s many moons. It is also our daughter’s favourite planet. Because gravitational forces constantly pull it, IO is always unpredictable, surprising and ever changing. It has the most dramatic landscapes, the highest mountain peaks, the deepest rivers and most explosive volcanic eruptions. We thought it would be an apt metaphor for our company that strives to always be at the forefront and surprising – because ordinary is just not part of our vocabulary.
