THE STORY BEHIND
Ekokids furniture celebrates children’s imaginary world, by allowing them to enter a world of make believe, through playful shapes and shadow casting.
Great design for kids should be fun without sacrificing its clean lines and functionality. Ekokid believes, when designing for children, we must enter their world and allow ourselves to break free from the constraints of our big people eyes and feel what it’s like to be a child again.
Ekokids furniture aims to make life easier for parents, with its simple assembly inspired by the Viking peg system, where furniture can be assembled in 5 steps and under 5 minutes.
We LOVE what we do and are so happy to bring to your children fun, eco-certified , modern plywood furniture with a dash of MAGIC and a whole lot of durability.
Designed and Made in Australia.
“Design incorporates logical thinking with imaginative play”
"Every design-conscious, practical and modern parent must discover Ekokid Spaced In - your children will be thrilled too!" Kristine from Kidsinteriors
THE FACE BEHIND THE BRAND
Hola! I'm Cristina from Lisbon, Portugal.
I landed in Australia nearly 12 years ago after finishing my Degree in Industrial Design.
I never thought, I would meet in Sydney, the love of my life and husband, with whom I have two crazy beautiful girls. We lived in Sydney, got married in Portugal; and moved to his gorgeous home town in the Mid North Coast. I was home staying mum for both of my girls. As you mums know, it is a full time job but Design always has been present in my being as a under current, and, slowly I regained confidence with my handmade plywood decor for children- Ekokids Australia.
When we moved in into our new house, I was looking for furniture for my girls room. In my pursuit for fun furniture, I realised it was always lacking at least one element I believed essential!
For that moment on, I was determined to find the very best material available and to provide an unique approach on children's furniture. In that pursuit, I came across the Viking Joinery, a no screws system that would lock furniture in place. Late 2016, after months of prototyping and testing, I was able to bring Kreature to life. That's when Ekokids was born!
Hope we can share this journey together. <3
