I’m always on the lookout for awesome kid furniture and this is my recent obsession; “baby in table” by Oji Masanori. It was completed in late 2008 and is part of OTOMO, a joint project between Japanese furniture maker Toa Ringyo and Sincol, an importer of Italian upholstery.
The beauty of this table is in the way it adapts to a growing family. At first it’s a baby chair and a table, then it’s a table that also holds books. And the chair doubles as a stepping stool. I can just picture little huey drawing while his baby sister sits in the table watching him (she can stare at her big brother for hours and be content).
