Iglooplay is an eco-friendly children's furniture collection from Lisa Albin Design that
combines organic forms, ergonomics and a modernist sensibility to playfully engage both
children and adults. The designs respond to the idea that child development flourishes from
contact with sculptural forms, material variation and color; they incorporate bent plywood,
hardwood veneers, rich colors and soft, upholstered foam. The furniture provides a safe
sense of place for children, enhances creativity through play and integrates gracefully into
contemporary, everyday life. Iglooplay's modern point of view embraces simplicity, quality
and above all, respect for children.
Because nurturing our children and our earth are a perfect fit, we use ecofriendly
materials that will sustain families and the environment for many years to come. We
use resource-efficient molded ply construction with hardwood veneers which have been
obtained from sustained yield forestry practice. All products meet or exceed applicable safety
standards and are designed for high durability in residential and contract use.
The multi-functional designs were inspired by observations of designer Lisa Albin's two young daughters at play and how they artfully created a sense of place using the objects around them.
The low and wide proportions, organic shapes and ease-of-use to enhance the spontaneous and creative process that children naturally express in their daily play. Child's play has a profound sense of purpose; it is not all
folly, but a necessity for children to learn how to negotiate their developing physical and intellectual skills. As Maria Montessori said, "play is a child's work." The designs are multigenerational; engaging, aesthetically pleasing, and adaptable for various adult uses as well.
