Project Description

Hill for Family



“Hill for Family” is a collaborative work by Jibpool international Limited and the design graduate Maxime Lai through the「DesignXcel」programme and the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association (HKF&DA).

“Hill for Family” is an outdoor bench designed for every member of the family with an eye on the interaction between the parents and children. The stairs design eliminates the discrepancy of height between the two generations, they will share the same eye level. Sitting on different levels but having the same view, children may play with the slightly tilted frames while parents can stay close and next to them.

Both Jibpool and Maxime value the practicality of design to users with special attention to details. To them, however, neither fun nor innovation shall be forgotten.

Since the work targets kids, Jibpool left nothing to chance when it comes to safety. The long bench had been put through mechanics calculations to avoid easy collapse. On the other hand, the stainless steel frame has a baked paint finish. Together with the use of wood for the outdoors, the bench is highly durable. The streamline design and hidden nuts and bolts further ensure safety too.
