Childhood is precious. It is the most formative phase of life when children first discover and engage with their surroundings, forge relationships and make sense of their environment.
Smartsters is a labour of love, created by parents who understand first-hand the limitations of indoor spaces. Home is where our kids live, sleep, grow, play, study, dream and build their most significant bonds. It is the immediate environment that shapes their emotional, physical, social and cognitive development. At Smartsters we recognized that when designed thoughtfully indoor spaces at home can aid children's development and growth. We asked ourselves why indoor spaces aren't better designed to bring alive the spirit of childhood.
We Asked Ourselves
- How can our homes be designed to spark curiosity and imagination?
- How can the design of children's furniture and spaces help elevate childhood experiences, evoke joy, create a sense of wonder?
- Can self-sufficiency and confidence be inculcated through everyday routines?
- Can the design of home objects that children engage with daily help them channelize their energies and better regulate their emotions?
- What makes a child concentrate better? Develop empathy? Learn to persevere?
We spoke to children, parents, child development experts and designers to learn more. We kept wondering, searching, enquiring, refining our ideas, putting them down on paper, and pushing the boundaries of design, until… Smartsters was born!
