PLAY+SOFT is a research project on new soft furnishings for young children, resulting in a line of around 200 products. The laboratory process involved the collaboration of twenty-eight international designers, teachers, and pedagogistas: the dialogue between pedagogy and design and the theoretical reflections that were developed.
They are made of eco-friendly materials, fire-resistant but soft to the touch, in a broad range of colors and textures.
PLAY+SOFT aims to introduce new sensory and aesthetic qualities into environments for children, with the guiding principle that 'children have a right to beauty'.
Their products include landscapes, micro-places, play structures, mats, transformable seating, and more. They're designed in partnership with ZPZPartners and the preschools of Reggio Emilia.
