The painted white beech plywood chair splits vertically and hinges open to reveal a little space on every single side.
The chair’s slanted arms become roof gables, while the divided hollow seat supplies four ledges for putting tiny furniture.
“When split apart down the middle, the chair reveals the shape of a house with a red gable roof,” said the designers. “Youngsters can play with their toys and stow them away with other modest objects by shutting the chair closed when playtime is over.”
The multifunctional furniture piece can as a result be employed for sitting, playing and storing toys.
“These three distinct functions make the Dollhouse Chair a extremely original and versatile piece of furnishings,” mentioned Torafu Architects.
Created by plywood manufacturer Ichiro and offered from its on the internet shop, the product was designed with longevity in mind.
“We hope that folks will use this solution for a lengthy time,” the designers told Dezeen. “It will be a great present for a kid, and we are positive they will be very surprised when they find this is a not only chair but also a dolls’ house.”
Last month, 19 London-primarily based designers produced miniature fantasy rooms for an exhibition at London’s Museum of Childhood.
In 2013, architects and designers such as Zaha Hadid and David Adjaye designed and constructed dolls’ homes that every single integrated a function that would make life less complicated for a disabled child.
