The Little Helpers
The focus of the research project was on creating educational and engaging furniture for children's bedroom. Neutral and simple shapes have been carefully designed to meet both the needs of children as well as being attractive for adults.
The project examines contemporary families and relationships of their members analysing how children engage with the domestic environment and their parents with the purpose of turning ordinary chores into playful activities to explore a common and emotional experience around the child’s bedroom.
The relevance is on the one hand to improve how children interact within their space exploring their power of imagination, on the other to allow parents to build a bridge between their own needs and those of their children. The aim is to bring parents to an emotional memory that belongs to their primary knowledge of the world to meet their children cognitive process.
The result is a set of five pieces that play a game between memories and ambiguity through a narrative that stimulates the child‘s power of imagination
