SOTTOSOPRA / Furniture for young and old


SOTTOSOPRA, the furniture that connects young and old barrier-free.

The intention of the project was to enable senior citizens and children to come together and communicate barrier-free. SOTTOSOPRA is multifunctional and individually usable by both generations and encourages playful interaction.

Thus SOTTOSOPRA finds its place in multi-generation homes and meets both ergonomical and mechanical requirements for adults as well as for children.
