With an aim to promote a healthy lifestyle and ‘encourage children to grow their own herbs or vegetables as well as prepare the food’ , the young UK-based interior and product designer Ruth Vatcher has created this multifunctional table ‘Eat Play Grow’. The simple, yet highly imaginative oak-wood design incorporates various functions such as a herb sprouting tray, a chopping board for food preparation, a ceramic watering pot and a charcoal felt storage system for tools and toys.
‘The simple yet functional design is aimed at being placed in an interior setting such as a kitchen or a bedroom. The child is encouraged to grow herbs or vegetables as well as prepare the food. Simple storage solutions such as the use of felt allow the child to store tools discretely. The table is designed to be simple and subtle, integrating healthy living into a child’s life from a young age.’
