«Kami» is a versatile furniture system that adapts to the different needs of a family and grows along with the children.

The system is designed to allow that its elements can be rearranged in different positions. It can be used as a toy box, children's shelf, changing table, children's table, desk, wardrobe or as a shoe rack. Kami promotes the independence of the child according to the philosophy of Montessori education.

The construction is made of oak wood and the joints are made of metal. Kami does not contain any chemical additives. A biodegradable water-based varnish was used to protect the wood. The modules are made of recycled and recyclable material, as are the metal parts, which can be recycled several times. The materials are resistant, durable and retain their natural beauty. As the system consists of only a few parts, assembly is a quick and easy process.

About María

María studied Indus­trial Design and Product De­velopment Engineering at the University of Zaragoza (ES) and the Savonia University of Applied Sciences (FI). After some work experience, she decided to join the Masterstudio, Studio Industrial Design, due to its hands­on approach and interdisciplinarity. Besides her Master in Basel, María has been working on a second degree in Interior Design.

Final Thought:

Integrative Design enables the designer to work on completely different projects because the interdisciplinary approach provides knowledge about all of them.
