Only when the mind is able to fly do exciting ideas develop. Based on this idea, Jongerius created 3 objects that connect the rational world of offices and the narrative world of fairy tales. The limited edition is part of the Vitra Edition project (2007), a laboratory that provided architects and designers with the freedom to create experimental objects without having to deal with the constraints of market and production logic. Office Pets push the bounĀ­daries of the field, emphasising the role of the imagination rather than the function of the objects.

The first set was created by Vitra and JongeriusĀ­lab, the next sets were created with Galerie kreo.
