italian designer carlo contin has designed a chair that encourages children to keep their toys in order, by giving it a container characteristic. called ‘mom’, the piece is made of transparent acrylic and has an opening on the top for children to fill the empty space with their favorite games once they are finished playing. the seat can be lifted for even easier insertion or removal of the objects, becoming a game itself.
children can insert the toys through a hole on the top part of it
thanks to small wheels placed on the bottom, the chair can be easily moved around for kids. the acrylic material also offers resistance to water, and it is possible to draw and color on its surface that can be easily cleaned. the chair will be an always-changing object, that will have a different look depending on which toys go inside, or the way they rest, creating an always fun to look at piece of furniture for both adults and children. ‘mom’ is a prototype and not in production.
