Elena Nunziata Design - The Little Helpers

The Little Helpers furniture collection is created by italian designer Elena Nunziata for her degree project at the University of the Arts in London. It is a set of five pieces. 

The " Paddy" coat rack , has " eyes" as knobs. On the rail model, each of the hooks can be slid from side to side, while on the coat stand, users can adjust the rods position through the central pole. the 'Charlie' hamper is nicknamed the ‘dirty clothes eater’, who stores clothes in a lycra sack that allows clothes to accumulate until its belly is full. Children have a visual indication of when it is time to load the washing machine with their parents. The eyes of 'Melvin the magic bedside table' can be rotated up to reveal lamps within. Nunziata reflects that the table also serves metaphorically as a figure of a night guardian that watches over the child. 
Fantastic, isn't ?
