Open Furniture for Social Impact in self-organised playschools
Soprasotto Kit is an open source kindergarten furniture kit supporting self-organised kindergartens to easily build their own safe and kid-friendly furniture with the use of a fablab laser cutter and simple assembly guidelines.
All furniture is made without glue and screws and it's inspired by the Montessori Method which believes furniture should be made of natural materials like wood and should be child size and lightweight to stimulate children's autonomy. Soprasotto Kit was designed with the support of WeMake within DSI4EU project.
