a versatile furniture system that adapts to the different needs of a family
How does it work?
The system is designed to allow for its elements can be rearranged in different positions. It can be used as a toy box, children's shelf, changing table, children's table, desk, wardrobe or as a shoe rack. Kami promotes the independence of the child according to the philosophy of Montessori education.
Why is it needed?
According to the EPA, furniture waste generated by Americans in 2017 totaled a staggering 12.2 million tons, and 80.2% of it went to landfill. The agency also found that only 0.3% of the f-waste that was sent to landfill was recovered for recycling. To make matters worse, furniture waste doesn’t include items like carpets and rugs, of which Americans threw away an additional 3.4 million tons in 2017. Part of the problem is “fast furniture”. Produced and sold by some of the biggest names in the furnishing and home improvement industries, these items are made using poor-quality materials and offered at prices so low that many people consider them disposable.
How does it improve life?
Kami does not contain any chemical additives. A biodegradable water-based varnish was used to protect the wood. The modules are made of recycled and recyclable material, as are the metal parts, which can be recycled several times. The materials are resistant, durable and retain their natural beauty. As the system consists of only a few parts, assembly is a quick and easy process.
