NINI DESIGN kids furniture is inspired by Montessori Method and Reggio Emilia schools Approach. The key idea is to allow children – even the younger ones – to be independent in movements and in inclinations, so that they can develop their self-esteem. Both the pedagogies propose a child-friendly environment that satisfy kids’ needs. NINI projected such a safe and stimulating space inside home. We want our kids to live in a safe nest that can teach them to fly away without fears…
What is Montessori Method
Maria Montessori realized that child develops his independence, self-confidence and creativity trough exploration. His mind is naturally a sponge who can absorb concepts and “lessons” from the environment. That’s why the classroom, in Montessori school, is organized to propose materials and experiences. Furniture is lightweight and low, even children can move it around. The space is safe and open, designed to let kids discover and explore.
What is Reggio Emilia Approach
Loris Malaguzzi founded the Reggio Children Approach, a pedagogy experimented in Reggio Emilia schools and pre-schools. He thought child as an active and eager learner, capable to express himself in “100 Languages”. Child interacts with school’s community and environment: this one changes to set his learning experience. A neat, well-finished and child-friendly space creates familiarity and psychological well-being.
