Brand Spotlight: Acne JR
The old saying “two heads are better than one” is usually true, and it’s certainly the case when we collaborated with the totally talented Swedish toy company, Acne JR. The brand is well known in Sweden for creating iconic kids’ toys that showcase their own inimitable style. Forget cheap and nasty modern toys which only last a few weeks, and imagine toys that ooze style and design. They could look just as at home on a shelf in a super-stylish living room as they do on the floor of a child’s playroom.
It’s difficult not to fall in love with Kranium. These cute wood-carved skulls contain a secret compartment that’s revealed by lifting off the lid which forms the top of their head. Perfect for storing shiny trinkets or maps to hidden treasure!
Acne JR specialises in bright, bold designs with definite shapes that allow their products to pop. Bell is the perfect example of form and colour meeting playfulness – a cute soft puppy with a bell around her neck. An address label sits neatly on the back of the head to ensure that no child will be without their Bell for long.
Storage doesn’t have to be mundane, which is why we love Totem. These handmade boxes are crafted from the Princess Tree, or Kiri in Japan. This light, characterful wood features three animal faces: owl, cat and bird, each with their own style of interior.
It’s no wonder we’re so excited about our ‘Trompe l’oeil’ collaboration with this amazing designer.
