Anyone with kids will know how quickly they grow when they’re young, which might explain why Dutch infant fashion brand Noppies went to SIG Zinc and Copper to clad its main HQ building in Lelystad. For unlike its ‘nappy’ namesakes, there’s no waste in evidence here.

Now who’s feeling like the pampered one?!
