DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Nico

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Baby cot

INSPIRATION:
As a designer I have been designing contemporary furniture for more than 20 years, but was just when my son Nicholas ( Nico) was born that I understood what was needed to create a perfect and functional space for children . I was frustrated as many contemporary parents who are looking for but are unable to find sophisticated design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Nico cot has been created to provide a safe place for babies. Made of an inert 100% resin recyclable to provide a safe environment to sleep. Given the technology and materials the cot is soft to touch, easy to keep hygienically clean and will not splinter. Beautiful shape and a offer of five different colors. The cot meets Australian standard ( cots for household use) , and its been designed according with European and American standards.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The cot can be transformed into a toddler bed. This is a cot with a double position for the mattress. First top position from newborn and until the baby can sit up ( 5 months ). Lower position of the mattress from 5 months up to 2 years old, then it is possible to change the side of the cot for an open side to use as a toddler bed, up to 4 to 5 years old.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2014 in Sydney Australia and introduced in to the Australian market in the Pregnancy Babies and Children expo in May 2015.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This is the first time that LLDPE low linear density polyethylene has been use to manufacture a baby cot. Made by rotomoulding.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Final dimensions: 150 cm X 92 cm X 87 cm height. Boxes: box 1: 940 cm X 565 cm X 880 cm height box 2: 1305 cm X 870 cm X 342 cm height total weight : 40 Kg

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
After market research and designing other nursery collections, we found the necessity to develop a product that can be suitable not just for a local market like Australia. We found the limitations in possibilities for shape using the most common material used to manufacture baby furniture such as wood, and some concerns about safety, such as paints or wood treatment. As a result we have designed a cot manufactured in a safe new (and different) material that provides flexibility in shape. The cot must meet Australian , European and American standards for safety. The solution must be environmentally friendly.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging part was to achieve a stable process during production. The cot is a combination of 4 different parts combined in different quantities and assemblies. The challenge is to get the precision in the manufacturing for a final result. Rotomoulding manages big tolerances during the process and this is something we were in the need to find a solution.
