Curio – the stroller designed for Japan

We all know that Japan is a small, condensed island but do you know where the narrowest passageways in all of Japan are? The 55cm-wide turnstiles of Japan’s railways. And guess who did their homework? Goto Design Office, the designers responsible for coming up with the specs of this new stroller that was unveiled earlier in the year.

The Curio Avventura has everything; a UV-blocking sun screen, a rope that automatically collapses the stroller, fabric that completely detaches to be thrown in the washer, ample storage space (even a place to put your grocery basket), all in a package that can roll right through Japan’s narrowest passageways. Finally, I don’t have to rely on lousy humans to get me into the train station.

  1. That’s great – I love the upright stance (my Chariot is great for running, but the handles don’t quite go high enough for someone as tall as me) and the Batmobile aesthetic.
