MENUT is a design studio focused in kids design, with the clear objective of gapping the bridge with the one for adults. Our philosophy is to offer an innovative vision on the way of life of a contemporary family. We present THEA, a theatre chair. Sit down and paint; create your story; and call your friends! THEA's focal point is the back, which can be used as a stage. There is a drawer in the bottom part, which once opened conceals the backside of the chair and allows some privacy for the ‘puppeteer’. Kids will find finger puppets in the drawer to stage shows with their friends.
Lollipop is a tongue cleaner for kids. The kids tongues are where millions of microorganisms live and causes not only emitting a strong malodor, but also contributing to halitosis and tooth decay. Although parents encourage their kids to both brush their teeth and clean their tongues, the kids tend to skip cleaning their tongues because cleaning tongue causes gagging, which is very unpleasant feeling. Lollipop help kids to clean their tongues because it is not only fun shape, but also fun to use. No more gagging is necessary while cleaning their tongues.

There are two drawing ways, creative drawing and music note drawing, kids can draw anything they want to create random music or use the rule we design to fill color on specific position to make nursery rhyme.
My inspiration came from the nature and my feelings of surrounding world. I would like to shape the different kinds of materials in a simple and funny way. Let children play with them to recognize the physical world, stimulate their imagination and help them understand their surrounding environment. How to have a rainbow? How to hug a summer wind? I am always touched by some subtle things and feel very satisfied and happy. How to store and how to own? Enough is as good as a feast.
