What makes timeless home design? What type of furniture will look great for years? You will want to seek out designs, styles and colours that are considered to be “classic,” that have been created to last. Furniture has a main role in any interior. A well-executed concept can result in a timeless piece of furniture that never goes out of style.
But, what about children’s furniture? Is it possible to create a practical, well-designed and stylish product for children? We have found a new company — uuio— that combine all these elements.
uuio is a new design brand creating high-quality children’s furniture and toys. Founded in 2016 by Pia Cohrs, Johann Cohrs and Sebastian Kühnel, it wants to create timeless furniture and toys to enrich the everyday life with children.
“It all began with the idea of designing a high chair. With a clear, timeless form, crafted from high-quality materials, and equipped with technical details. But the high chair was not the end of it – SIB has grown to become a children’s furniture concept” says the photographer and co-founder of the company Johann Cohrs.
This Hamburg-based company combines classic and contemporary design, fine materials with good craftsmanship to create timeless furniture that will last for generations. Let’s have a closer look at its range of products!
Children’s bed VII, a Bed for Life
VII is the modern bed with a classic look. It is adjustable in length by exchanging the long frame parts (90 x 160 / 180 / 200 cm) and you can use it as well as a daybed. The frame’s natural oak wood contrasts with the colours of the wooden bedposts and struts. Furthermore, the distinctive slatted frame consists of coloured insert components which custom-fit into the wooden frame.
SIB, highchair and furniture system
SIB consists of a highchair (the seat can be adjusted in two different heights), table and chair, and a rocking chair. All pieces of furniture are crafted from high-quality oak wood and will be available in natural wood and various colours.
TRE, the wooden toy system
Stack, build and create, a classic play for toddlers and children. With the wooden toy TRE, children from the age of 3 can build different types of tree-combinations. The act of stacking trees encourages learning skills and helps concentration in a playful manner. TRE will be available in different kit combinations.
All products will be available from spring 2017 at uuio online store and selected retailers.
