KINDERGARTEN FURNITURE DESIGN
Keywords:kindergarten, furniture, zoning, color, children
The kindergarten furniture on the market has design problems, being rigid, in bright colors, uncomfortable, stationary and unadaptable, leading to a crowded atmosphere of the space. The choice of the space in which the furniture will be modeled was made taking into account the mutual benefits that may occur as a result of the interaction of children with the elderly. Consulting the bibliography, a zoning of the space was made, and the furniture was designed according to the areas. The socialization area proved to be essential in any kindergarten, but also the freest in terms of furniture. Therefore, in this area it was proposed to have only the sides of the room with a stable shelf, a movable whiteboard and cubes of different sizes. The cubes can be arranged in any way the children want, stimulating their creativity. The transit area is the space where children make the transition from outside to inside. In this space it was decided to place a stable closet and a mobile armchair for each child, but also pots with succulent plants, these being more resistant. The learning area is a control area, where children have tables for 4 persons, shelves for books and a pot for 2 people to work at. The furniture in this area is stable, being the space that teaches and prepares them for school.
