I was sent a press release about a new product designed by Spinifex, the SPLAT Child’s Chair, has just been launched online. It will be sold through their own site, the Hidden art shop and Mimimyne the designer eco shop for families. It’s a fully biodegradable chair made from reclaimed cardboard that doubles as a storage unit for art materials, games and small toys. It can also be customized.
Compartments in the back hold art materials while paper is stored under the seat. It’s made from laminated cardboard sheets threaded on postal tubes, and measures 50cm X 50cm X 30cm.
Recommended for children aged 3-6 years old. The chair comes in normal brown cardboard and you can choose a brown, white, red, blue, green, yellow or pink seat color. It’s not cheap, at £80 including delivery, so I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has bought one.
