Kidsonroof – Dutch Design for creative and playful kids and grown-ups

Kidsonroof is a Dutch Design studio established in 2005 by Romy Boesveldt and Ilya Yashkin. Their quirky, recycled, animal paper toys/decorations are our favourites from their eco-friendly products. They also produce books and furniture which has been especially designed for creative, playful children and grown-ups. Kidsonroof products are designed to stimulate the creativity and imagination of their customers both young and old alike, helping us to reconnect modern life with nature. We think the illustration style is reminiscent of Charles Harper.

Ilya has been trained as an architural designer (Marchi in Moscow and Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam). His designs are ingeniously three dimensional and very associative. Romy takes care of the conceptual development and styling.

Here are some of our favourite products from Kidsonroof
