Close Up

Bronze
2008

Close Up is an art lab table that provides a collaborative learning experience by stimulating children’s curiosity when drawing. With pleasant organic qualities, it has an inviting light feature that facilitates tracing, sketching and observation. Even more attractive for kids, Close Up has portable containers for gathering samples, such as bugs and leaves. Embedded in each container’s lid is a magnification lens, giving children the chance to get a closer look at their finds. By placing the containers on the table, children can then explore and display their findings while learning to draw from nature. The table's adjustable height can ergonomically accommodate two children aged six to seven.
