Japan is a country with limited access to land for development and natural resources and has developed a rich culture in the past years through the inheritance of a system which nurtures creativity. Furoshiki is the act of covering all forms of object by wrapping them with one piece of clot and Origami is the act of creating different shapes by folding a sheet of paper. With these examples of the Japanese traditions and cultural background in mind, we designed Owl Chair for kids.
Creative Wooden Creatures kit allows children to create a wide range of animals by combining various body parts. Designed for children above the age of 5, it is a universal toy that children from different cultural backgrounds learn and discover animals of land and sea while also designing their own creatures. Challenge was to design a toy kit that offers unlimited possibilities for building creatures with simple, organic forms that foster creativity and perception of aesthetics.
With bird&berry collection we tried to find a balance between parents and child's understanding of aesthetics. The collection combines simple elegance with functionality. Sloped lines are a reminder that nature doesn't think in straight lines thus evoking curiosity and imagination of little ones, to think outside the box and promote them to become in to an independent person. We were focusing on child's needs and the detail while crating every piece. Furniture made with love and attitude becomes something more than just a thing.
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.
