CINK’S BAMBOO DINNERWARE
Inspired by the shapes and colours of the Österlen plains in southern Sweden, Cink’s bamboo kids’ tableware was designed by Love Elena, who had had enough of glasses, plates and cutlery for children in garish colours. The brand name Cink comes from the French word for five, cinq, the idea being that the five colours in the range – rye, fog, ocean, beet and brick – should remain a constant in all the products it makes. Items to endlessly mix and match in the changing colours of the landscape that inspired them. Looks like pretty picnics are on the cards!
BUGABOO’S MAMMOTH BAG
This bag is likely to become a musthave accessory for parents who take children out for a stroll in the pushchair laden like a pack mule. Designed by the savvy Dutch mobility brand Bugaboo, the Mammoth bag could have been called the Mary Poppins bag, since it can hold so many things: up to 12 kilos or 30 litres of shopping, toys, beach gear or picnic necessities. Neatly attached to the lower frame of the stroller, it won’t get in the way of either parents or children. Available in black or grey, it makes a truly elegant accessory. (H.L.)
