Theo Richardson for P'kolino Play Table

Theo Richardson for P'kolino Play Table

New York-based designer Theo Richardson is obsessed with simple, functional designs. A RISD grad with an interest in "anonymous design", Richardson takes a studied and meticulous approach to his work, and it shows in pieces like this beautiful, streamlined, yet completely age-appropriate maple and vinyl modular play set. Richardson is the kind of designer who makes me think about having kids for almost a full two seconds, before I realize I could just buy the table and scrap the procreation - and then I realize I can't afford either.
