Dutch industrial designer Lucas Maassen employs his three young sons Thijme, 9; Julian, 7; and Maris, 7, to paint the pine wood furniture built in his factory. Due to Dutch child labor laws it is only possible for the boys to work three hours a week. As illustrated in their video (below), the restricted time line only helps to enhance the furniture’s unfinished and unrefined look (think dripping paint, uneven strokes and unpainted surfaces). We think their painted pine wood creations would be a perfect addition to a Tween Space.
