“A beautiful appearance and great usability are important characteristics of objects in everyday use. Aesthetic design radiates quality of life, appealing to our senses and acting as a source of pleasure day after day.”

 

Stig Leander

“The birth of a child creates probably one of the strongest emotions one can perceive in life. For me it was the moment I truly realised that we are not going to be here forever. That we are not the last of the human being gives us a sense of responsibility about what we do today and its consequences for the world our children will inherit.”

“Perfection is not when there is nothing more to add but when there is nothing left to take away”

New Innovative and Engaging Toys for your Child

When it comes to choosing toys for your child there is more to choose from than you could possible ever sift through. Good news is that you don’t have to. You just need to have a think about what you would like to child to learn and what interests him/her and what you would like to look at/listen to. We LOVE educational toys where skills are learned while playing and where the activity is not just a repetition from the previous play. Therefore we are super excited to add 3 new brands to our range, Calafant from Germany, Milaniwood from Italy and Kipod from Israel. These new brands will launch in Melbourne in August at the Reed Gift Fair and Kids inStyle (part of Life inStyle). The toys and games from each brand are very different from each other but they all strive to develop the child’s do-it-yourself skills and the associated confidence that comes from being able to do things yourself. They also support the research that shows that creative children become better at problem solving and innovation. Smart toys for smart kids.  Calafant makes cardboard models that the child assembles and then decorates. Great for an indoor day or on a plane or train going somewhere. There are many different designs in various sizes and level of difficulty and they can all be disassembled and put away for another time should you run out of time before the project has been completed. For the younger children the models have lines like a colouring in book to assist the decoration and a pack of felt pens is included. For... read more

Linea by Leander

After 10 years Leander has released a new range, Linea by Leander and although the trademark soft curves are nowhere to be seen, there is no doubt that it’s a Leander: it is complete in its form and function, made of the best materials and has longevity both visually and practically. Designer Stig Leander says: “The innovative design of Linea by Leander® is not an attempt to keep the classic and organic Leander shapes at a distance. Rather it’s a sophistication of what I love. Making design that matters.” The inspiration came from the hour glass and is evident in the design of the change table, a striking piece of furniture which fits into any size nursery. Its angled legs led to the design of the cot, also featuring non-traditional lines and a story took form.     The story is now ready to be told and Linea by Leander will arrive into Australia mid-June. The range including a dresser is made from European beech in natural and a comprehensive series of textiles lets you accessorise it to your individual style and includes canopies for the cot as well as cushions and covers for the sofa.          If you would like to know more click through... read more

Bednest voluntary modification, not recall

There have been a series of reports written on various media sites after a recent interview with the family who lost their child in 2015 in the UK, whilst sleeping in a bednest. This coincides with the upcoming inquest on the 14th Dec. We would like to explain the situation and urges everyone to understand that the coroner has at no time labelled the bednest dangerous nor asked that it be recalled. The following comment has been provided by the manufacturer, Bednest UK. “The bednest has not been banned or recalled in Australia. Faced with some concern raised by some experts in the U.K., we developed a modification kit in November 2015 to delete the half-fold feature. This was also offered to customers in Australia. All cribs shipped to Australia after November 2015 have been modified at the point of manufacture. They no longer have a half-fold feature. Our distributor Danish by Design in Australia has kept the authorities informed. The term ‘recall’ is also used for product modifications that don’t require the product to be returned. “ References to a recall of the product in Canada are false. The bednest has never been for sale in Canada because the bedside bassinet as a category is not allowed there. A small number of people had imported the unit into Canada themselves and were contacted and offered kits by Bednest UK to modify the half drop side. The bednest voluntary product modification had to be done through the ‘recall’ mechanism in Australia as there is no other option offered by the government department that manages such things. Danish by Design has made every... read more
