Furniture Change in Children

How do you change the world? You brainwash the minds of the children of the world! That’s what public school is all about. So what do designers Yana Tzanov and Stephanie Sauve have to do with this? They’re making the world a better place by not only creating a new generation of furniture in form but also in starting children using renewable products from the very start. Part of this modular furniture project is about creating furniture for children that doesn’t just replicate adult furniture, the other is green!

Take a look in the gallery below to see all the lovely thangs this set of furniture can do. It’s called the “Mod U Me” and not only is is made to grow with the kid, it’s good for the environment. Made of Balsa wood, a fast growing plant from Central and South America that’s not only plentiful and easy to grow, it’s super strong. The inner core is made of Eco Friendly Foam – Sofficel & EcosoftX, non-polluting production and no harmful substances released during its use. Sofficel is fireproof, foamed, and available in various densities. EcoSoftx is soft, water-repellant, easy to clean and mold resistant.

Designer: Yana Tzanov and Stephanie Sauve

    Great design, but I dont know if I agree on balsa wood being strong… Its really fragile and lightweight, and wont really be able to cope with to much stress….

    I beg to differ..

    Balsa wood is one of the most lightweight woods available, but being a hardwood, has one of the strongest weight to strength ratios of any wood. The reason for its lightness is because it is composed of large thin-walled hollow cells. This wood can be easily bent into a number of shapes and even when thin, holds its strength. Common applications of balsa wood currently are for surfboards and boats.

  • Bring 5 cups of water and 4 cups of sugar to a boil. You can come up
    with some funny questions and let your participants answer them in a rapid fire
    round. You can be sure that no power is wasted or sit in the back of the cabinet.
