‘my space’ by liya mairson

liya mairson a recent graduate from shenkar institute for engineering and design has sent in images of her project ‘my space’. the cardboard folding play area is designed for children aged 3-6 based around a pop-up technique.

‘my space’ has been developed specifically for small apartments which lack the space for a play room. when closed it uses minimal space and can be stored behind a door or under a single bed.

  • I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem.

    You are incredible! Thanks!

  • this will last pretty good. yeah, some of the fold-out parts will get torn off, but a hot glue gun will soon fix that.
    I built a simple cardboard play house for my son from flimsy boxes some Ikea furniture came in, and though it got broken it was easily fixed, and has lasted a year already. He’s 2 and a half now.
    I figure the kids will be bored of this before it’s completely destroyed, and at least this can be recycled unlike 90% of the awful plastic cr*p out there for kids!

  • Can’t believe Ikea haven’t already thought of this – but they must be a good bet for selling the concept?
