Abstract: Kinderwork aims to help parents who work from home and take care of their children better. Inspired by the Circuit Breaker period where childcare was unavailable, the child-sized furnishing encourages independence in children, while still forming healthy attachment to their parents by being close to their parents. The set of three tables caters to the child from 0-5 years old. The bassinet transforms into a stool for the child, and they are able to use the age and height appropriate pieces as they grow. Even past the age of 5, parents are able to transform the set into a set of drawers with an add-on. The use of plywood means children can scribble on any surface to make it their own, and parents are able to lightly sand off the markings, before passing the piece onto the next family for their brand new baby.
