The Design Process by Studio Belize®
The first step is to understand the needs of children. This includes researching children's motor and cognitive development, as well as analyzing the requirements for safety and functionality of furniture. It is important to ensure that the design meets the needs of children and supports the promotion of their development.
After understanding the children's needs, the next step is to develop and sketch ideas. This step requires creativity and inspiration to create unique and engaging designs. It is important to explore different options and gradually refine the design until it meets the requirements.
An important part of the design process is the choice of materials. It is important to ensure that the materials used are safe, durable and environmentally friendly.

Another important step is fabrication and prototype testing. This step involves using CAD software to put the design into practice and create a prototype. It is important to test and evaluate the prototype to ensure that it meets the requirements and fulfills the expectations.
The final step in the design process is production and quality control.
The design process of children's & play furniture such as the Pikler Triangle RICKI RACKA®, is a complex and demanding task that requires a lot of creativity and know-how in design & manufacturing. It also requires a deep understanding of children's needs and development, as well as safety standards and parents' demands. By using innovative technologies and collaborating with experienced professionals such as engineers and craftsmen, designers can create amazing and wonderful pieces of furniture for children that are both functional and beautiful.
Another important aspect of the design process for children's & play furniture is the consideration of value approaches such as sustainability and also educational approaches, such as the Montessori approach. Montessori pedagogy emphasizes independence and support for children's natural development, which has found application, for example, in the design of the Pikler Triangle RICKI RACKA®.
In the design of children's & play furniture is also our task to pay attention to the sustainability of objects. By using environmentally friendly materials and avoiding unnecessary packaging, we face up to our responsibility and model the values of respect and responsibility to our children.
Ultimately, the design process is an opportunity for designers to use their creativity and skills to make a positive contribution to the development and environment of children.
