laikingland Product showcase

Throughout September, KK Outlet’s retail arm will showcase products from the innovative product designers of Laikingland.

Laikingland is a creative collaboration, based in both the UK and The Netherlands, whose intention is to design and manufacture beautifully crafted kinetic objects that engage, and evoke a sense of play and nostalgia.

Laikingland will bring to life many of their products including:

The Storm in a Tea Cup which pays homage, in a very literal sense, to the famous idiom meaning a small event that has been exaggerated out of all proportion.

The Party Popper Machine by Martin Smith continues his theme of devices of celebration for Laikingland. In homage to the humble plastic party toy and to follow his interest in loud bangs, Smith has developed a nonsense machine that elaborately assists you in the firing of party poppers.

The Lazy Chair is a 1:6 scale version of Fresh West’s classic exhibition crowd pleaser, the collapsible Lazy Chair. A push of the lever and the Lazy Chair collapses, it slowly returns to its standing position under the force of a torsion spring.

The Laikingland showcase will be part of the Anti Design Festival and the ICON Design Trail both of which run 18-26 September.
