A spatial system aimed at preschool children with tree functions. A circular wooden panel and four supports, joined together by ropes, make up the base of the spatial structure functioning as a workspace. Twelve children can play around the system, under it, or inside it. By placing one of the two canvases on the base, the space is given a new purpose. By means of transformation, this workspace becomes a place for playing, seclusion, exploring, or an exhibition panel for drawings and objects.
The system is developed so as to meet the children’s need for a space that belongs to them, and, conversely, one to which they belong. Inspired by a real-life experience of a child meets the needs of children for their own space. The aim is to encourage the proper development of children through play.
The project has been developed during design studies at Faculty of Applied Arts Belgrade, University of Arts, Belgrade, under the mentorship of Ranko Bočina.
