Yuva / baby cot

Yuva
Yuva

The baby cot Yuva is designed for the specific problems that mothers of newborn babies have to face in shelters for migrants. These small rooms are shared by many persons and are usually characterized by high density and lacking privacy for each one. While being a mobile bed in the daytime it is designed to be docked at the parents` bed at night so that the mother doesn‘t need to get out of bed for nursing her baby and thus she avoids waking up the other roommates. For this purpose she lifts the side leaf and takes the baby to her body. The perforated side leaf enables that the baby is within sight at any time and it can be rinsed off easily.
