The Design Centre in Barnsley is playing host to the British Council Childsply furniture design exhibition this summer, from 2 August to 11 September. Briefed to design a piece of furniture from a single sheet of plywood for a child aged between one and six years old, 12 designers responded with a selection of miniature creations. The work includes a see-saw seat by Inflate, a light and jigsaw by Andrew Stafford, a toy box by Jam, a workbench by the Azumis, a customisable locker by Sebastian Bergne, a chair and steps by Michael Marriott and even a Robin Day curved seat. The exhibition arrives in the UK after touring Berlin, Madrid, Taipei and Taichung City.
