Korean designer Design Skin has risen to the urban design challenge of making kids furniture for small spaces by developing a line of modular, component-based multifunctional furniture for children. What’s great about this children’s furniture is that it can double up as both an activity gym, as well as regular furniture for bedrooms and communal areas.
Cubes, mats, balls and other assorted elements can be combined into a myriad of different configurations to make castles, gymnasiums, sofas and various soft-play activity areas.
Since the pieces can be folded up and re-configured, they can be altered as and when required. This makes them ideal for small spaces where there isn’t a designated play area. For example, a child’s bedroom could be rapidly reconfigured into a gymnasium. Given that it’s harder and often unsafe for children to play outside in dense urban cities, this is very clever.
Construction is sturdy and the pieces are easily washed. It can also be manufactured to hide the zippers, should it be used around toddlers and infants.
