We find out this beautiful project by Lisanne Koning: Inside the Box. She creates a way to make the relief packages for refugees or those in disaster-stricken areas themselves fun by printing colourful images of animals, vehicles and board games on the inside. These can easily be cut out to make toys and there are different colour codes for different ages. Playing is a basic need for children, it helps them to cope, so in this way, the aid boxes are not wasted, but get a new life, brightening the days of the most vulnerable.
Remember that every child deserves the chance to play untroubled no matter what the circumstances are!

Look at these archetypal pieces of furniture by Tom Frencken, a Dutch artist and designer who lives and works in Eindhoven.

We really love this unique family of furniture that is a bit cartoonish, but always recognizable and feeling familiar!
Let's have a look at this big donut by Joel Blanco: he turns this piece of cake into a monumental object to propose a new kind of value; not the value of eternal truths or wisdom, but rather the
