bObles' furniture features not only striking design objects in bright colors and geometric shapes — the product line also gives children a unique opportunity to develop their motor function and understanding of their own body, while playing and using their imagination.
Evaluated by Danish Physiologist Louise Haervig as "...so well thought out that if you had to buy one piece of furniture for your child, you would have to buy this!" The Elephant works as a back rest when a small child sits in the curve between the legs. It has a rocking function to challenge and stimulate a child while sitting. Later on, the child can stand on top of the Elephant's feet, challenging standing balance. And, as a purely functional piece, it is a great chair/stool to sit on — both for children and their parents.
The Tumbling Animals product line is based on simple geometric forms - cut in the shape of animals. Meet the Elephant Tumbling Animal: suitable for children's furniture, but designed for creative play. Children can tumble, roll, balance, seesaw, rock, jump and gain some bodily experience, which can serve as the foundation for further development.
Produced in a firm foam with a soft surface, very easy to clean under the shower or with a damp cloth. Tumbling Animals are tested especially for children and are free of any toxin or phthalates.
Dimensions: L 21.5" H 12.2" D 9.4"
Designer: Bolette and Louise Blaedel
When the designer Bolette Blædel was on maternity leave with her first son, she soon discovered the scarcity of children's furniture that encourages play, creativity and physical exercise, while at the same time satisfying her preference for good, Danish design. With her sister, the fashion designer Louise Blædel, she therefore conceived the idea of creating a series of multifunctional furniture that children want to play with and adults want to bring into their sitting room.
Today, the result is a group of animals, each with its own shape and numerous functions, e.g. an elephant, which one moment can be used for riding and the next be turned into a boat, a table or a rocking footstool. bObles' furniture is not only striking design objects in bright colours and geometric shapes - it also gives children a unique opportunity to develop their motor function and understanding of their own body, while playing and using their imagination.View other products by Bolette and Louise Blaedel
