We love Torafu Architects’ playful design on anything from children’s toys to furnishings – like these beautifully constructed wooden dowel blocks we featured recently.

They’ve done it again and have just come out with an imaginative take on children’s furniture called Dice. Torafu tells us the function behind their design for Dice:

“We designed a piece of furniture with multiple resting positions that can be used by young children up until they reach adulthood by rolling it over like a dice. This multi-purpose piece of furniture can be used in three different ways depending on which side it is rested. For example, in “desk for young children” mode, dice becomes a desk with a built-in chair that offers an intimate space like that of a small room.

By turning it over to the side with the wide fan-shaped surface facing upwards, dice becomes a “stool” on which an adult can sit. Moreover, by turning it over once more, dice becomes a “side shelf” with a top shelf to place objects and a bottom shelf to hold books and magazines.”

These are beautifully designed yet versatile and adaptable pieces of furniture that will grow with your child and also fit well into small spaces, urban dwellings or contemporary homes. Find out more on Torafu’s site.
