Back to the source of life! Kidsonroof wishes to re-connect modern
life with nature, rediscovering basic values. Kidsonroof offers an
ecological approach to the act of playing. Stimulating creativity and
imagination lies at the heart of Kidsonroofs products.
Kidsonroof was established in 2005 by Romy Boesveldt (NL 68) and Ilya
Yashkin (RUS 67). Together with their 3 kids and their little friends
they manage a permanent testlab where new ideas keep coming up. A few
weeks per year they go back to an oldfashioned simplicity when spending
time in their little shed in the southern French mountains without
electricity or running water.
Ilya has been trained as an architural designer (Marchi in Moscow and
Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. His designs are ingeniously three
dimensional and very associative. Romy takes care of the conceptual
development and styling.
