From child-sized designer furniture to customized outdoor seating, this jamboree of unique children’s furnishings puts play at the forefront of design.

Bunky by Marc Newson
Magis

Bunky’s design combines fun, privacy, and safety to create an environment where kids can have a space of their own and, obviously, sleep. Made from rotational-molded polyethylene, it is assembled from just four pieces and is available as a children’s single bed. All surfaces are smooth with no sharp edges, and the material is highly durable and easy to clean.

Standard Sway Stool by Daniel Michalik

Balancing motion with function, this stool is made from a single block of recycled cork. A special pattern is cut into all four sides, causing the seat to rock and pivot under the weight of body movement. Sitting actively improves the sitter’s posture by the act of maintaining balance.

Lou Lou Ghost and Tip Top by Philippe Starck
Kartell

Philippe Starck’s iconic Louis Ghost Chair and TipTip side table were made into their respective child-sized versions. Just like Louis, the Lou Lou Ghost is made of durable polycarbonate, making it scratch-resistant, stackable, and easy to clean. Meanwhile, the TipTip kid’s round top has a single base that combines a colored top with a hollow transparent leg. Together, they can be used both indoors and outdoors.

K desk

This kid’s desk resembles the letter K when seen from the side. The design features rounded corners and a lid that opens to reveal an interior tabletop. The K desk can be used for working or hiding little treasures in the underside of a lid that doubles as a place to pin drawings or photos.

Downtown by Oiva Toikka

Magis imagined a square shelving unit that features five setback tiers, a pointed top roof, and legs. Along the sides, recessed squares mimic the shape of windows. The skyscraper-shaped form is molded in polyethylene, making it suitable for both outdoor and indoor use.

Fermob makes the Adada Rocking Horse out of the aluminum leftover from producing other furniture. It has a lightweight frame outfitted with plastic pads on the base to let children rock away indoors or out without scratching the floor.
