Not quite life-size, but definitely oversized for stuffed animals. These Zoo Toys were designed by Ionna Vautrin for the Danish textile company Kvadrat as a part of their artist series. Kvadrat’s artist series is a collaboration with artists to help push the boundaries and understanding of textiles themselves. The size these toys allows them to fit visually between a toy, a piece of furniture and sculpture. The bright colors and the shapes which are obviously based on the real creatures are simplified and abstracted to the purest forms.
