Kit auto-costruzione spazio infanzia – wikifactory

Questo è un kit opensource per l’auto-costruzione di uno spazio per la prima infanzia.

Il kit supporta la creazione di uno spazio sicuro e a misura di bambini e bambine. Con l’aiuto di una laser cutter (che si trova in ogni fablab) e di queste facili istruzioni da consultare, tutti possono farlo! I mobili proposti si montano senza colla né viti e sono leggeri e facili da spostare anche per i più piccoli. Il kit è composto da una sedia cubo, una panca, un letto a terra, un tavolo trapezoidale e un copricalorifero.

Il kit si ispira al metodo Montessori che suggerisce l’utilizzo di mobili prodotti da materiali naturali come il legno fatti a misura di bambini e bambine, in modo da stimolare la loro autonomia.

Questa collezione è stata fatta per Soprasotto, un laboratorio per bambini e bambine in età da nido, auto-organizzato da genitori, che si trova a Milano. Dato il numero insufficiente di nidi pubblici, soprattutto nelle grandi città, il kit nasce per supportare e aiutare la diffusione di questi progetti di welfare comunitario in giro per l’Italia.

kindergarten furniture kit

This is an open source kindergarten furniture kit.

The kit supports self-organised kindergartens to easily build their own safe and kid-friendly furniture with the use of a fablab laser cutter and simple assembly guidelines. All furniture is made without glue and screws, plus it is lightweight and easy to move around. The kit includes a cube sit, a bench sit, a floor bed, a trapezoid table and an heater cover.

Our kit is inspired by the Montessori Method which believes furniture should be made of natural materials like wood and should be child size and lightweight to stimulate children’s autonomy.

This collection was done for Soprasotto, a self-organized kindergarten based in Milan, but the idea of the kit is to support and easily spread this useful experience throughout different cities.

Soprasotto is a self managed kindergarten created in Milan in 2013 by a group of parents and educators. The purpose of this kindergarten is to make up for the lack of places in the public kindergartens and to create a space for both kids and adults, closer to the ongoing transformations in working conditions and family forms.
This kit is done by Lyne Dumoulin & Poorvik Patel between 14 May and 6 July 2018, with the support of WeMake, within the EU funded project DSI4eu.
