More than child's play

More than child's play
This chic new couch, by Unitec design graduate Marvin Reber, cleverly dismantles into an indoor playground.

At first glance, the inclusion couch, while handsome, is simple in its design. But don't be fooled. 

The five components that make up this chic sofa were designed to be dismantled, allowing owners to turn it from lounge furnishing to old school fun for the kids – from wooden base as seesaw, to legs that become mini seating.

Says Reber: "This is not a children's couch, nor is it purely for adults – it's designed to complement and satisfy the different needs that children and adults have, without compromising on aesthetics."
