It’s not always helpful for designers to loop their clients into the creative process, but for Tokyo-based firm h220430″, collaboration with a Japanese kindergarten proved to be remarkably successful—and fun.

The company was tasked with designing a chair for the young students, who were ultimately key players in the creative process. Co.Design reports that firm director Satoshi Itasaka wanted a piece that encouraged hands-on interaction, and he allowed the kindergartners to build various models using a soft material that behaved like rubber foam.

The end result, dubbed the Owl Chair for its resemblance to the animal when its wings are spread out, doesn’t require any tools for assembly and will be available this spring.
