Collaboration project with the Children's Museum of Art in New York City.
While observing the art room at the CMA, we noticed that a number of children had difficulties reaching the faucet of the sink. Some managed to reach it after using the pipe cover as a step stool, but they could not push the pedal to activate water from the sink.
CIMA is a step stool that enables children of ages 3-5 to access the sink in the Art Room. The top of the stool encases a button and mechanism that activate the water flow pedal when pressed. The stool is 8” in height with an intuitive design for easy use. It is stainless steel with a non-slip, rubber surface, and is also easy to clean. The structure of the stool protects the water pipes and pedal by covering it completely and is stably attached to the ground with two metal brackets.
