Do You Need An Eco-Friendly Kids Chair?

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.

  1. I’m really glad you like the chair! I think it’s a great little product and it is very sturdy and attractive. If you’d like to see one, it is going to be exhibited as part of a show about eco design at the V&A Museum of Childhood: I’ll send you some details once the dates are finalised.

    Thanks for your interest!

  2. My kids sit on old oak logs (1 foot in diameter) turned sideways from a tree that was knocked down in a bad storm 3 years ago and cut up. Of the 6 logs outside I eventually sanded one down and we use it in the kids room. Would this be considered an eco-friendly chair?
