Why do you design products for children?

I design for children because I love their rapport with the object, frank, direct. I like their way of appropriating and finding multiple ways to play thanks to their imagination.

What was your inspiration for the Bibliotracteur?

When designing the Bibliotracteur, I answered my own needs as a parent. I wanted storage for books. We had just arrived in the countryside and my son was fascinated by tractors so the idea took hold of itself.

How children respond to this play-furniture?

Children really enjoy the Bibliotracteur. I observed many children during my first exhibition in Paris, and I can say that the Bibliotracteur travelled many miles.

Good design for kids – what does that mean for you?

For me, good design for children means a functional and aesthetic design that appeals to children and their playful side, while making them sensitive to good taste.

What toys did you play with as a child? Did you have a favorite toy?

When I was a child, I played with a wooden building set, but I spent most of my time drawing.

Do you feel there is a toy that every child should have?

The Bibliotracteur, of course.

What toy do you think is completely superfluous?

Each toy has the merit to exist. Any toy that can provide interest, curiosity or learning for a child earns its own place, but there are those who are more mature than others.
