A project that began as an experiment on the rituals involved when receiving a guest.
Aimed at children 6 to 12 years of age, furniture that doubles as a last-minute hideout for clutter.
Considerations about educational design and domestic functionality led to a way for kids to have much more control over their domains.
The coat stand is made from maple stacking dowels, a walnut disk, a hand-dyed birch plywood base and a canvas sack with a solid birch plywood bottom.
The stool is made from maple and wool felt.
Rather than completely hiding the clutter, these two pieces phagocytise it and give it a sculptural identity: the stool uses clothes and soft toys as padding for seating and the coat stand gains volume with the amount of objects it contains.
