New York City, August 12, 2005 – Kikkerland Design Inc., loved for their innovative and sometimes humorous everyday objects, is launching their strongest product introduction to date.  Award-winning designers from Brazil, Holland, United States, and Russia contributed to this Fall’s presentation. Highlights include:

                Lenticular Clocks by Russian born designer Constantin Boym, famous for his series of ‘Missing Monuments’ and his book "Curious Boym." For more information go to:

                A follow up to the best-selling Invisible Playing Cards by Dutch designer Pieter Woudt, Glow-in-the-Dark Poker Cards and Pool Poker Cards.

                Pintacuda, pictured above, newest in the family of wind-ups by Brazilian artist Chico Bilcahlo, inspired by rainforest insects real and make-believe.  Proceeds of royalties go to Projeto Mil Folhas a vital 1,615,000 sq. ft. reforestation project in South America.

                Josh Owen’s Knock Off Lamp, not only has fun playing off the name as a "knock off" of the bowling pin design, it turns off when knocked over.

Kikkerland Design is also the North American distributor of the phenomenally successful Moleskine Notebooks. Rob Walker of the New York Times recently wrote that it’s "a notebook that looks like the kind of thing that holds interesting, and possibly important, jottings."

Kikkerland is a Dutch term of endearment for the country of Holland meaning "land of frogs," where the president of the company, Jan van der Lande, was born.  In 1991, the original office was located in a Dutch style houseboat at the 79th Boat Basin in the Hudson River where Mr. van der Lande has lived
with his family now for 20 years.  Kikkerland headquarters are now located in the former Yuengling brewery building in Harlem, New York City.
