At Milan’s Furniture Fair 2009 [2], the Designersblock show [3] was definitely not to be missed. It’s a world tour of design [4] that showcases not only the freshest, newest designers but also a wide variety of approaches and methods. One of the standout exhibitors this year was Drill Design [5], a Japanese duo who came up with a collection of amazing products made with laminated wood. We covered their beautiful striped wood-and-veneer stools here [6], but we’d be remiss if we didn’t also mention their awesome decorative toy cars and trucks [7], inspired by a traditional and very popular Japanese candy called Kintaro Ame, which roughly means the “sweet of a fairytale hero.”
