Children designers, an idea by Mobidécouverte


Mobikadabra is part of the project Mobidécouverte – les enfants designers, a project of the Industries Françaises de l’Ameublement (IFA, French Furnishing Industries) conducted in France since 1998 and involving teachers and their pupils, designers and manufacturers. Supervised by teachers and assisted designers, primary school classes (4 to 10 year-olds) were asked to imagine new pieces of furniture and to create their models. Around sixty prototypes from these “children’s dreams” have been produced by a company with the assistance of designers.

A highly rich experience for both industrials and designers who project worlds for children that sometimes fall short of their expectations: the world of  a child is not simply a miniaturized version of our adult environment: other stories and other images underlie its creation.
