The mind of a child...

 A childs imagination can be so wild and creative, more so than an adults. I suppose I found this piece particulary interesting because in less than a month Ill be looking after 3 little boys as an Au pair.

'Jack Beveridge and Joshua lake's 'children's furniture project sees the duo translate drawings of chairs by eight year olds into real pieces of furniture.

'we wanted to explore the untainted imagination of a child. a class of 7-8 year olds designed their vision of a chair, we made them into reality.'

'working with a local primary school, we took an art class and gave the children a simple piece of paper with the words, 'please draw a chair'. with a little encouragement and some coloring in pencils, the children started scribbling away their dream chair! after an hour, we had the most beautiful selection of designs that we couldn't come close to even dreaming of.' - joshua lake- Taken off design boom
