竞赛简介:
该设计竞赛旨在为10岁以下的儿童制作互动、模块化和动态的家具原型。儿童家具应该是他们个性的反映,而不应该仅仅只是一个功能实体。家具应该有一种与生俱来的雕塑感,可以激发孩子的创造力和想象力。
 
认知发展在孩子的成长过程中非常重要,发展迅速。随着孩子们的成长,他们会以一种更有意识的方式意识到周围的环境。像大多数人类一样,他们有一种永无止境的欲望去探索他们周围的世界。他们的身体变得更加活跃,喜欢玩耍和移动东西。孩子们有一种原始的、纯粹的想象力。他们喜欢创造自己的故事,建造自己的世界,无论是有形的还是无形的。
 
多年来,儿童家具在美学上有所改进。然而,工业设计和生产方法并没有真正从儿童的角度来考虑这一问题。儿童家具被视为家具目录的另一个类别/子集,设计静态,缺乏创新,方法僵化、实用。儿童家具应该是超现实主义的,愉悦的,能激发和表达孩子的想象力的。孩子们不断地与周围的环境互动,并为他们周围的物体赋予自己的意义。家具应该让孩子们能够与他们互动和玩耍,并能够按照他们的想象力塑造它。孩子们发现了很多设计者根本没有想过的东西的用途和可能性。参与者需要有创意,给他们与家具互动的空间,他们会做剩下的事情。这可能不仅仅是颜色、形状或内置功能的问题。参与者应该努力给他们想象、探索和玩耍产品的空间。
 
孩子们成长的速度很快,为他们制作的家具在一段时间后往往会变得多余。此外,他们的注意力自然持续时间较短,很容易对自己的物品感到厌倦。家具应该是动态的,能够根据使用它的孩子而进化和适应。参与者应该创造具有变革性的家具,这些家具可能会自我调节,以适应不同的功能或用途。家具应该保持其价值不变,并成为其所在空间内可持续发展的典范参照点。
 
在设计家具时,所有有利于增强体验的因素,如舒适性、人体工程学、耐用性、无障碍(对残疾人友好)和可见性都应该被认为是重要的。简报没有提到“家具/产品”的任何具体类型或功能。参与者可以根据他们的叙述自由指定任何类型的功能,单功能或多功能。参与者可以在仔细考虑最终用户(在这种情况下是儿童)的情况下自由选择其产品的规模和大小。游戏是一项倡议,旨在以更好的方式关注儿童家具,并策划有创意、有趣和定制的想法。
 
Background
PLAY is a design competition with the aim of generating interactive, modular and dynamic furniture prototypes for children up to the age of 10. Furniture for children should be a reflection of their personality and must be more than just a functional entity for them. The furniture should have an innate sculptural quality that could stimulate a child’s creativity and imagination.
 
Cognitive development is rapid and very important during a child’s growing years. As the kids grow, they get aware of their surroundings in a more conscious way. Like most humans, they have an insatiable urge to explore the world around them. They get more active physically and like to play and move things around. Children have a raw unadulterated imagination. They like to create their own stories and build their own worlds, tangible or intangible.
 
Kids furniture has improved aesthetically over the years. However, industrial design and production methods don’t really think about it from the perspective of children. Kids furniture is treated as just another category/subset of a furniture catalog with static designs, lack of innovation and a rigid, practical approach. Kids furniture should be surreal and joyful that can capture and express a child’s imagination. Children interact with surroundings constantly and give their own meanings to the objects around them. The furniture should enable the children to interact and play with them and to be able to mould it as per their imagination. Children find many uses and possibilities to objects that the designer doesn’t even think about. The participants need to be creative to give them room to interact with the furniture, and they will do the rest. It may not be just about colours, shapes or built-in features. The participants should strive to give them the space to imagine, explore and play with the product.
 
Children grow up at a rapid pace and the furniture created for them tends to get redundant after a certain point of time. Also, they have short attention spans naturally and get bored of their belongings easily. The furniture should be dynamic and be able to evolve and adapt according to the kid using it. The participants should create transformative furniture that may be able to modulate itself into different functionalities or uses. The furniture should keep its value intact and become an exemplary sustainable reference point inside the space in which it is kept.
 
All factors that are conducive for an enhanced experience like comfort, ergonomics, durability, accessibility (disabled friendly) and visibility should be considered important while designing the furniture. The briefs do not mention any specific type or function for the ‘furniture/product’. The participants are free to designate any kind of function(s), singular or multiple as per their narrative. The participants are free to choose the scale and size of their product with the careful consideration to the end user i.e. a child in this case.  PLAY is an initiative to focus on kids’ furniture in a better way and curate ideas that are creative, fun and bespoke.
