WELCOME TO THE STUDIO
Welcome to MKID. We are a strategic industrial design studio. To us, design is a way to communicate, a sensitive point where function and economics meet aesthetics and emotions.
We work with both clients and on our own, self-initiated projects. We believe in a more personal development of the industry where people get an opportunity to again relate to our work.
Building relationships based on a particular nature, personality and value greater than only the economic one.
MKID and Thomas Alexanderson have through several collaborations been exploring the meeting between two different processes, one where control is necessary to obtain the final result and one where its partly conducted by choice of materials or firing techniques. A creative journey where both parts are forced to challenge and combine the different degrees of serendipity and control, both in the process and for the end result.

HOME OFF / WORK ON
Home off – work on is a table playing in the border between a luxurious dinner table and an effective home-office. The greatness of this piece is its surprisingly light and stable construction, well hidden under the solid ash board. The top has two recessed cord channels that can easily transform the table from being a functional workspace to becoming an elegant dinner table with brass candlesticks. Under the top, following the shape and the angle of the faceted edge you can find two drawers made to hide your mobile workstation.

Classic BRIO toys are part of the great Swedish design heritage known for its simplicity and quality. New Classics are a new contribution meeting today’s consumer requirements by hitting the border between toys and furniture.
BRIO Rock On and Ride On invite children to enjoy their playful shapes and attract adults to use them as natural complements to the home interior. Their abstract, non-gender-specific shapes can become animals or cars and bicycles during play. Their dimensions and optimal seat height is easy to manage even by the youngest users.
SPIN & WOBBLE
Non- figurative and non-gender-specific toys that encourage the idea of open-ended play, a collection that can be passed down from generation to generation. Wobbles are two identical bodies, but in reality they are two contrasts to each other. Spin grows with the child, from being a teething ring to showcasing the centrifugal force as a spin top.
