martí guixé: my first office for magis

as children we want to act and be treated as adults, engaging in the activities and using the products our elders do. drawing on this idea of giving children their ‘first’ experience of something, spanish designer martí guixé has developed an office space for young ones. guixé’s ‘my first office’ for italian furniture manufacturer magis is a working and storage unit in which children can play and learn. the simple, cubicle-like structure is made from plywood which has an entrance and walls that are built upwards like open concept book shelves and houses a built-in table all of which can be accessed from both inside and outside the space. filled with books, objects, toys… ‘my first office’ becomes a lab for growth and creativity.
