This furniture series was created as a reaction to the unsatisfactory supply of affordable, safe and glowing colors of children's furniture in the market. Our intention was to create a playful approach to bring new and ergonomics.
Fantasy team started its work with choosing construction materials, safe hardware and components in October 2012. The first complication came soon. There was not any suitable handle at the market, so the team decided to design a unique one. There were different requirements for the new handle defined - functionality, safety, variability, value added, versatility, design as perfect function and appearance. After wide researches and initial drafts the final solution came up. The documentation for mold making was drawn and a first 3D model was printed. After small technical changes the Fantasy Handle started to be produced in series. It is a characteristic feature of Fantasy cabinets and it is available in different colours.
