This table turns assembling your child’s furniture into a game you play together

HAPPIECE is a table designed to encourage communication between a parent and child at home. In the assembly phase, parent and child put HAPPIECE together in a spirit of constructive play. It is designed for children between the ages three to six and consists of nine birch plywood pieces and two rounded boxes. Its components are colour coded in for ease of assembly and to help visualise the logic of construction.
