In addition to their functional purposes, the children’s furniture made by Vitra is designed to make little ones happy, turning their rooms into places where they can have fun playing, sitting, painting, riding, reading, counting, tidying up and much more.
‘Hang it all’, a wardrobe unit designed by Charles and Ray Eames, has hooks with colorful wooden balls that motivate children to hang up all their things – and because of its practicality, ‘Hang it all’ is found in many places other than children’s rooms. The designer couple also created the Eames Elephant, stools and toys around the same time. The Panton Junior by Verner Panton is another furniture piece for children made by Vitra. About three quarters the size of the classic Panton Chair, the Panton Junior is an iconic seating object for children up to roughly twelve years of age. Likewise suited for children’s rooms are the biomorphically shaped Corniches shelves by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec – providing a place for important objects, such as a favorite toy figure, a piggy bank or a book. Finally, the designer George Nelson designed a small series of wall clocks for children: Omar the Owl, Fernando the Fish and Elihu the Elephant are appealing and useful complements to Vitra’s line of children’s furniture.
