The intentions of this project were to transform an ordinary shop into a joyful, fascinating space designed with children in mind, but avoiding the clichés of for-children design. The space itself is a playful exploration of lines, planes and volumes using light and colour. The linearity of the plan however, is distorted by a paradoxical angle which represents the true, unpredictable, path kids make through a space. By curving the furniture's edges we cushion customers from being potentially unsettled by the unorthodox display.
