Partners

Here are our partners for this website. I could say about each one of them that they are one of my favourites in their own field because I admire and love every single one of their designs. They are very different in the materials, the shapes, the colours they use and yet they all thrive for beauty, originality and high quality. These are the qualities they were selected for.

Here is what they say about themselves:

CALAFANT, Germany

The CALAFANT Concept: Let children build their dream (castles)!

A couple of years ago, Boris Schimanski, a well-known cartoon artist in Germany, set out with the intention to keep his kids occupied with something that would hold their attention and imagination long enough for him to finish his current work project in peace and quiet. He took some plain cardboard, drew a castle and punched out the individual pieces. With this building and some decorating material, he was able to incite his children to spend more time in their playroom than in his studio. This was just the beginning.

After his work project was completed, he noticed that the kids were still busy with his cardboard creation. After they built their castle by putting the pieces together, they decorated it with all sorts of things from the house and yard and played with it, along with their little figurines, for hours and hours.

The joy of playing with their self-made toy didn't diminish and more and more friends joined in. This is how the business idea for CALAFANT was born.

Christian Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate into English, which means a "maker of things mischievous and always on the move".
Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research".

They also use a mixture of patterns: dots, stripes, flowers... And add their common love of certain worlds and influences: the circus, the folklore, the gypsy culture...
