    KIDZONE
    An award winning installation at the Interior Design Show, KidZone showcased the newest and most innovative furniture and product designed for children by international designers. The design concept was inspired by a child's ability to transform a simple cardboard box into endless possibilities. Fantastic worlds and narratives were created in a place that encouraged pure and innocent imagination to "play, play, play."

    The surface, set at eye level for small children, is mirrored and covered with a grid of dollar store toys. The open flaps of each box were dye-cut from recyclable cardboard. A hovering ceiling of boxes acted as a large 'lid'. A grid of simple light sockets with pull string created a domestic scale within the larger exhibit hall.

    Design: John Tong, principal and designer in charge, 3rd Uncle design
