Pop-Up Factory

The Pop-Up factory was created by A4 studios as part of Beijing Design Week 2013 and 2014. The concept is to create simple products to order within local communities, thereby cutting out the waste of storage and transport of finished goods, while being able to respond to local demands. The project was a great success as we ended up making components for several other exhibitions as well as our own range of products.

Jigsaw Fridge Magnet Set: 

This design is an homage to the animal jigsaw created by Enzo Mari in 1957 for Danese. We set our designers the difficult task of creating a set of interlocking fridge magnets based on the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

This is a kids' chair in the form of a horse. Moving the head causes the tail to swish.
