Kaiku

I first saw the "Zen Wagon" by Kaiku @ the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York last month. Now it's featured on Fast Company's "The Downturn's Upside: 4 Design Firms Founded During the Recession"
Designed by Scot Herbst and his wife Amy, "it's there reinterpretation of the little red wagon. The wagon is made of formaldehyde-free bent birch plywood, natural rubber air-filled tires and won’t corrode from moisture... The idea sprang from watching mothers in the park pushing their kids in highly-designed and ergonomic strollers. He realized no one had turned that same attention to the basic children’s wagon."
It really is a cool wagon.
