by Remko Verhaagen and Stephen Boom
  • When toddlers arrive any carefully designed interior turns into a scrapheap of toys and kids stuff...
  • And since cleaning up isn’t exactly what kids love to do most, in many cases it remains a mess for the next 16 years or so.
  • We wondered what would happen if we could make a kind of ‘design’ object that is equally good looking and a lot of fun to play with!
  • Doodles from Remko’s sketchbook with the first sketches of Hobbel.
  • Early process CAD rendering showing a version with a continuous frame.
  • The first mock-up...
  • It was really hard to find the right bending tool for our (spline curved) tubes. Somehow it was a lot easier to find a ‘test pilot’.
  • Special edition ‘Silver Prince’ with blue details.
  • Soft-coated ‘Fire brigade’ edition with black details.
  • The Hobbel family.
