This is a design love story by Min.


Before I became a dad, I wanted to do something for my baby and decided to design and make a bassinet for my baby. I wished to make a bassinet that fulfills a functional purpose but should also serve the wants and needs of my growing baby. I found problems with research of existing products. A bassinet is one of the most important pieces of furniture for newborn babies. But as babies grow, they usually outgrow their bassinet in three months. After that time, it is a useless object and is also too expensive to use for such a short period of time. To set a reasonable price of the bassinet as a manufacturer, the restricted level of production cost has limited the improvement of the products' quality. I made an effort to solve the problems. The bassinet was designed to meet the needs of each phase of my growing baby. The bassinet can be used for many years by transforming into storage, chair, and table. I completed to build up the bassinet and my baby, YiAhn is sleeping in the bassinet now.
