Tetris furniture for kids
Play+Soft was developed by Maurizio Fontanilli in collaboration with Reggio Children. Any process that results in giant, kid-sized Tetris shapes--in both 2-D and 3-D--is on the right track. The cube unit in the 3-D ones is 25cm, btw.PLAY+SOFT aims to enrich the material complexity and variety of environments for young children, introducing pliability, softness, and elasticity in places that are often composed of few materials, all of them hard. A rich material landscape supports children in their learning adventure and in constructing their identities, helping them to hone their sensory perceptions and develop synesthetic abilities.
