Quand Louis Le Sec habille Kukuu … on adore ça!
When Aija called me to ask if I could send her some bedlinen for her new collection pictures … I say YES! Why? Because I really like her project, her idea behind, her furniture and … the name of her second daughter 🙂
Let’s discover who is behind Kukuu
Practicing architect Aija Priede-Sietina and designer Daneks Sietins are the happy parents of two daughters. Their third child, KUKUU furniture, was born together with their second daughter, Sophie. Born because, while they were cradling their first child Lotte, they grew tired of looking for functionally designed, ecological, sustainable and matching furniture that is safe for children, and which, rather than suppressing it, actually nurtures a child’s personality.
Because it’s not the bed but the kid that’s most important in a nursery.
Currently KUKUU design furniture for babies is growing together with the family’s younger generation – as Lotte and Sophie play, Aija and Daneks are observing their daughters’ needs, interests and habits, and step by step are creating a collection that combines an deeply intimate understanding of the inner world of kids, professional design solutions and high quality ecological materials.
KUKUU’s name was inspired by the baby’s first game – hide-and-seek. Kukuu. Where’s Lotte? Lotte isn’t here. Sophie, where’s mum? Kukuu, mum’s here. KUKUU furniture teaches children to play using their creativity without suppressing their powers of perception.
