Called stacking throne, the seat can be lowered as the child grows by removing up to four of the foam components, which can then be used as toys or reconfigured into shelving.

The exhibition continues until 17 April. See all our stories about Milan 2011 »

Here's a tiny bit of text from Laurens van Wieringen:


‘Stacking Throne’

The Stacking Throne was a private commission and especially designed for 1 year old girl, Bodile.

She can now use it throughout her life. 4 of 5 foam parts can be taken out and used as her imagination suits her.

    Dunno bout you, but I find it's nice to have your feet on the ground when sitting; so the seat should be getting higher as the user ages, not lower. Raising small children higher only makes sense when they need to be at the same height as taller people; e.g. at mealtimes.

    Also I wonder how stable it is, given kids' inclination to move about a lot while sitting.

    The concept of a seat that grows with the user and deconstructs into other furniture: A+
