The PLAY+SOFT project takes inspiration from the Reggio Emilia infant-toddler centres and preschools in Italy, guided by Reggio Children. This initiative focuses on creating top-notch educational environments, considering the surroundings as the “Third Teacher.” 

The project has developed flexible and inclusive furniture for children through collaboration with architecture, design, and art experts. The PLAY+ design team, under Reggio Children’s guidance, has produced innovative furniture to support flexible, open-ended, and inclusive learning spaces.
