Penda Creates Dandelion Influenced Interior for Toby's Homependa tobys home interior FUNMIX designboom‘toby’s home’ is a café and flagship store for a line of toys. the collection shares the story of fictional character toby and his friends, who were born from the seedlings of dandelions, and grew up in the forest. ‘toby’ was designed as the brand mascot for FUNMIX, a large commercial compound located in beijing, china. penda was tasked to architecturally translate the personality and background of the cartoon cast into an imaginative scheme for children and grown ups alike.

like a natural forest, the arcs work together to create contrasting atmospheres of solid and void, closed and open, dark and light. all elements are painted white, which results in a strong visual break from the dark floors and walls. ‘toby’s home’ can further be adapted via integrated LED-lighting capable of highlighting specific regions within the artificial dandelion woodland.
