Last Saturday Robin Lokers and his box-chair made it through to the finalsof the ‘Best Idea in Holland 2008'. Spark is intensively involved in the development of this product concept.
With support from Spark Robin's idea evolved from a mini-playpen into a multi-functional children's chair which in a turn of the hand is transformed into a safe step for toddlers to stand on when they are washing their hands or ‘helping in the kitchen'.
The jury showed themselves to be especially positive about the contribution from ‘the manufacturing industry' - read Spark - to the development of the original idea. The final of this SBS6 programme will be broadcast live this coming Saturday. There's a lot of hard work going on at the Spark offices right now to further improve the prototype of the play-chair. Curious? Watch SBS6 this coming Saturday evening, 1st November.
