Egg-o

Egg-o is a multi-functional object designed to improve the lives of refugee children.
Its distinctive shape makes it convenient to carry and easily assemble anywhere.
Egg-o is based on the idea of a simple object to serve multiple functions, that follows the growth of the child.First a swinging cradle, then a baby back carriers and finally a rocking chair to play.
While the elastic fabricof Egg-o provides comfort and support to the baby, the interlocking mechanism allows for a quick and easy assembly.
Egg-o is also a social project that gives the refugees a chance to contribute their community and foster their integration.
Providing employment to the refugees through the production of Egg-o help to improve their self-sufficiency and their will of independence.
