The home as ludic space
The objective of the project was to transform this apartment into a continuous playground for a family with two children.
The custom furniture is flexible, it can be moved around, and is easy to use for depositing toys or be part of the game.
The wheeled boxes can be turned into a table or seats or can find their place under the furniture to let the space open.
The deposit area is an open exhibit of toys, games and collection. Words like welcome, well done or “10 fleas on the tractor” used in family games became part of the design.
Also, old toys, with a symbolic value, such as the suspended airplane, were kept and integrated in the design.
The living room, the hall and the hobby room were transformed into one friendly space for inventing new superhero stories.
