There’s very little information about the Noach Cradle, but that hasn’t stopped them from becoming the talk of the design town. Numerous European publications have gushed about them and van Veldhuizen was invited to display his work at the recent Milan design festival. It’s easy to see why. The designer scoops the oval-shaped beds out of a giant chunk of plywood on his farm in the Netherlands. He then pads them with cozy cushions and hangs them up using a very sturdy rope that should put all mothers at ease.

We don’t really recommend leaving an infant on a high branch without supervision, but we love the idea of children having a chance to sleep in such close proximity with the natural world. Baby’s first treehouse or spirit nest measures 115 x 50 x 40 cm.
