TORONTO VIDEO

 
     

 

TORONTO is a detachable and adjustable stool for playing. It is made of waste cork, kid-friendly foam and you can recycle it completely.

TORONTO is a piece of furniture and a toy at the same time. It is a multifunctional transformable piece of furniture designed to benefit kids in their growth, in an intuitive, fun way. It helps them strengthen fundamental skills such as movement, coordination and manipulation.

The TORONTO design process adopts a 'Design for All' approach, in fact morphology and kid-friendly materials have been studied and selected for kid manipulation, both by little children who need to develop their manual coordination and enjoy assembling, disassembling, inserting, etc, and also by older children who like using their imagination to create footsteps and practice psychomotor activities or building their own scenario to play. It means that Toronto promotes an inclusive way to play between children with different abilities.

The TORONTO stool collection is produced by MADE DESIGN, a design oriented Spanish brand with extensive experience in furniture for contract. Its productive process is characterized by attention on recycled, quality materials and local production.

TORONTO is suitable for indoor playground spaces such as libraries, kindergartens, etc. and also for domestic play areas.

MAIN FUNCTIONS:

sitting-down; exercising the sense of balance; building psychomotor circuits; learning by doing (different materials, textures, weights, densities, etc); assembling and disassembling; decorating and organizing play areas.


COMPONENTS and MATERIALS: cork discs, foam discs in black colour, foam protective cup in black colour, string.

DIMENSIONS and MODELS: diameter 270 mm – available in three different heights h320 mm (5 cork discs + 4 foam discs); h240 mm (3 cork discs + 4 foam discs); h200 mm (2 cork discs + 4 foam discs).
