Designing for kids: Moblo and Ankio

The Associazione Design Italiana (Italian Design Association) has recently organized a competition targeted at young designers. Among the winning ideas were two products specifically aimed at kids, Moblo and Ankio.

Moblo has been designed by three students of the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) in Milan, Luca Galnarini, Cristiano Vigan/<= and Linda Pobega. The system consists of different modules, which can be rearranged to create a playing-space for kids with different forms and functions. Unfortunately the presentation of the product is only in Italian, but you can get a pretty good idea, just by seeing the pictures.

Ankio, was designed by Barbara Gilardetti a student at the Industrial Design department of the Polytechnic Institute in Milan. Ankio could be described as a three level faucet, where the different basins can be used according to the kids' age (and therefore height) and afterwards dedicated to different functions, for example just as a storage place. Again, unfortunately the product,Aeos presentation is only in Italian.
