In the files of Steiff, the legendary producer of plush teddy bear, there is a picture of the early 900, which shows the children room of a middle class family – German, but it could very well be Italian: a spartan bed, a teddy bear, two dolls, a chair and a bench type school, a few books of fairy tales, for some curlicue “infantilizzare” environment. Edges everywhere.
Thirty years later, presented a book, Gio Ponti and his comrade Emilio Lancia propose more or less the same room, but this time all the corners are rounded and boyish charms even the shadow: the child is not a toy, rather than needs toys. Another twenty years and a picture tells us that everything remains the same: it seems that the room in time and fashion do not pasino. And today? Two trends: remain faithful to tradition, and said, formed in the XX century, or vote for the kid’s room for experimentation in design and decorative crosses exactly as happens in space for large.
More creatively fruitful, this second path has led companies and designers to populate the room objects and extravagant entertaining, unorthodox and provocative, but always with their precise nature of teaching.
Otherwise defined as a floating mine-chair designed for adults and children, with our round cut proof? Or a multifunction desk so as to become an office worthy of the father, but in miniature? Or a bed shaped like a donut?
