Laikinglands first product is the Applause Machine, designed by British artist Martin Smith. Just press the button and the Applause Machine enthusiastically claps its hands for you.
Laikingland is a creative collaboration, based in both the UK and The Netherlands, whose intention is to design and manufacture beautifully crafted kinetic objects that engage, and evoke a sense of play and nostalgia.
“Our work represents our interest in humour, craftsmanship and narrative. Each of our designs tells a particular story of celebration. Our hope is that each piece will continue to be celebrated in the lives of our customers.”
