Superbambi – chair for children & play furniture by Elda Bellone, Scoopdesign

Tell us about your background.  How did you become a designer?

I do not think that I became a designer but I think I really was born like that … Pretty soon I began to realize that I could really play by transforming things into other things … creating new stories based on what I had around me. Then I started the discipline of creating, I attended the artistic high school and then the university of Architecture.

What was your inspiration for play furniture “Superbambi”?

I am very fascinated by the things that have multiple readings. I like to work in an open way and “play” with form and function, especially in an object  I like to have more shapes and more features together, I think it is really fun. For superbambi the multifunction and multiform concept was the basis of the idea; a sort of a smart piece.

Do you have children of your own? If so, how do they respond to the “Superbambi”?

Yes I have a little one … He is very curious and he is exicited to have so many things in one! It is an endless fun game.

Are there other products that you produce specifically for children?

I would say no, even if each object carries a playful side.

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

I played a lot with shoeboxes, papers, fabrics…I used to make dollhouses, creating all furniture with things like sponges … The best part was to find the way to use the things around me for my purposes. And Yes I played a lot with little dollswithmy little houses.

And subsequently: What toy do you think is a completely superfluous?

Believe or not everything that you can’t touch, smell and manipulate is superfluous. Everything that turns off creative thinking and imagination.
