Large children’s toys almost always pose the same problem: space. And the issue is magnified for those living in dense cities or small areas. But every once in a while a product comes along that aims to solve, or mitigate to some extent, the burden placed on parents to maintain sanity within an increasingly crowded play pen. The Dollhouse Chair, by Tokyo-based Torafu Architects, appears to be simply a chair. It’s much more.
Designed Koichi Suzuno and Alicja Strzyżyńskaby, the kids chair, when split apart down the middle, reveals the shape of a house with a red gable roof. Kids can play dollhouse with their toys and stow them away with other small objects by shutting the chair close once playtime is over.
