The Design Team Behind The Stokke Sleepi

The design team behind the award winning Stokke Sleepi on what makes a great cot

Why do you think well designed baby/children’s products have gained such prominence in recent years?
Style is becoming more important to this generation and parents are no longer willing to compromise their own style when they have children.

What is it about the Sleepi’s design that sets it apart from the competition?
Sleepi is unique in the way that it adapts to the ever changing needs of your growing child.
Mini is the perfect first bed for your baby, cosy and cocoon like it creates a nestlike environment that is comfortable, secure and easy to move from room to room.
Of course Sleepi isn't just for babies. It grows into a cot, a bed, a junior bed and when your child has outgrown it, it can be used as a sofa or even as two chairs!

What are you most proud of design-wise about the Sleepi?
Its adaptability, longevity made from honest materials. Sustainable design at its finest.

What influences came into play when designing the Sleepi?
We wanted to create a product that worked well for child and parent. We wanted Sleepi to be secure and practical whilst being natural and simple. The round Mini crib is quite womb like and the oval shape helps facilitate airflow throughout the cot. Details like holes in the mattress platform and use of naturally clean beechwood and non-toxic lacquers contribute to this safe sleep environment.
What three words best describe the Sleepi?
Cosy, adaptable, natural
