After the birth of twins in the family, we saw the need for compact and multifunctional furniture for two.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
nuun kids design designs and produces multifunctional furniture for children, with as special collection for homes with twins or siblings of similar age. It is of particular interest to point out the double high chairs, that occupy the least possible space to adapt to each moment's need, and can be constantly recycled and reused. In addition to this this furniture, made of wood, is designed to stimulate creativity and play, which is the main activity of childhood.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
nuun kids design furniture is designed for spaces that are sensitive to children's needs, where kids can play, create, learn, have fun and basically grow up! A chance to grow up learning to share and interact is one of the best gifts you can give a child. For this reason, we at nuun kids design have given special thought to furniture for twos.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2012 in Barcelona. Currently the products are being launched onto the market.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The oUeat high chair is made of birch wood, with a varnish finish and whiteboard paint. The circles on the sides facilitate its movement and transport. All complements, the back, the tray, the bar and the safety belt are assembled in a very articulate and simple way, using the slots.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The dimensions of one high chair are: 38,3 x 38,3 x 74,5 cm.
For two high chairs they are: 38,3 x 38,3 x 95,2cm.

There are not many products dedicated to twins in the market.
Our goal has been to create differentiating furniture that reflects our values: creativity, the play and educational aspects, reusability, multifunctionality, packing density and ecology.
After finding the right material, a large number of prototypes were made, and tested on children, to improve their functionality. This allowed us to achieve the optimum design.
The product has been launched onto the market, and it is enjoying very positive acceptance in European markets.
The creative aspect, the product and graphic design, was the easiest one, since our careers we have developed those skills. Once we passed that stage, all types of unforeseen difficulties and challenges appeared: production plant, web site creation, photography and video creation and all the legal aspects such as the nuun brand registration, industrial product registration, product certification and so forth.
Currently the new challenge has started: commercialization.
