Belly

CHAIR FOR CHILDREN IN SMALL LIVING SPACES

Small living spaces are becoming a trend, and design is constantly improving the problems people face when living in a compact environment.

The ‘Belly’ is an innovative piece of children's furniture that considers the living space's effect throughout furniture’s service life. Children’s furniture needs change as they grow, and Belly is a chair suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years old. Not only does the Belly fulfil children’s need to sit, it also functions as a small table that allows them to play and create. In order to provide additional storage to meet the needs of small spaces, the seat of Belly actually conceals a secret storage space. Belly therefore functions as a child’s toy box, expanding intuitively as more toys are stored inside it.

Belly takes the shape of an animal. It is an indispensable piece of furniture within a child’s growth environment, and it is also the playmate that accompanies a child’s growth.
