DASDA / Play Mat


The foldable play mat DASDA fulfills a child’s need to play for his first dozen of years.
What is a mat or a cuddly bed for the baby, turns out to be a slide or a teeter-totter for the toddler, and later a pirate’s ship, a castle, a theater, and so many other things, in the child’s fantasy.
DASDA has two faces, each one different from the other. One is soft, calm in color, to invite for a rest. The other one is covered with a sleek textile in a more stimulating color. It animates to active playing and sliding.
The foam core of the mat is connected with the textiles in one single production step which, at the same time, punches the fold lines
