Design exclusively for preschool children,

revolving around their living habits

Furniture formulates an environment, where the preschool kids live and grow up. Furniture designed revolving around children's living habits, will add value to daily life.

How to design children furniture?

Children's furniture should conform to their physical and psychological development. Thus, research on preschool children was conducted, to explore how the furniture can contribute to intellectual, social, and emotional aspects.

Final Design

This furniture piece mimics the shape of a fawn, encouraging children to interact with the furniture intimately. Different from the usual storage cabinets, it opens up to allow the little owner to use and decorate in his own way. Years later, it will become a pleasant memory of childhood.
