Realizing that little ones grow up so fast designers are increasingly creating innovative baby products that are designed to last. The Soleil 1,2,3 baby bed from Castor & Chouca, is a case in point. Made from eco-friendly, recyclable materials - it starts off as a baby bassinet, it then transforms into a child’s bed and finally, a child’s desk. This is one clever and functional piece of furniture that can be used long after your child has grown out of diapers.
The Soleil 1,2,3 cradle is designed to be portable so it can be kept close to the family. The base is made from 20 mm bamboo slats and the cradle has automatically locking wheels for added safety. The supportive mattress can be reclined to reduce reflux and the mattress cover is washable. The cradle is like a wooden vat that has large transparent plexiglass windows - so you can keep an eye on your little one at all times.
The cradle measures 40x80cm (15.7”x31.5”), the bed measures 70x140cm (27.6”x55.1”), and weighs 80kg (176lbs). The kit, including cradle, bed and desk components, is priced at EUR1,290 (around US$1,800 at time of publication).
