kinder MODERN is the only gallery worldwide specializing in vintage children’s design of the 20th century and inventive, contemporary design objects, furniture, and accessories for children. With a playful approach steeped in function, kinder MODERN has chartered the path for contemporary child design through collaborations with the best in product and furniture design, innovative curation, thoughtful exhibitions, and insightful editorial.
At Sight Unseen OFFSITE, kinder MODERN will present a life-sized interactive game of “design chess,” featuring a bespoke kinder GROUND geometric carpet as the game board and child design “chess chairs” by prominent and emerging furniture designers from around the world, including Matthew Sullivan (AQQ Design), Wintercheck Factory, Matthew Yates, Mexa, and more. Child design goes far beyond furniture for the under-12 set and this conceptual exhibition of high design illuminates the fantasy, form, and play essential to this unique design niche. With design greats and some of the best (little) players in the city tackling the game, kinder MODERN encourages design as sport, breaking all rules and expectations.
