Inspired by the Montessori chair concept, Babylodge® CUBOTTO is a special multi-purpose cube conceived to help babies and toddlers move and manage themselves autonomously since the very first months, encouraging self-confidence. With size and overall dimensions designed on purpose, kids can handle it without asking an adult for help, pushing, turning or flipping it according to their need.
CUBOTTO finds its ideal complement in CUBOTTO TABLE, the perfectly integrated kids’ table that is able to embed one or two CUBOTTO Montessori chairs. Besides representing a vital tool for playing and learning for the child, the table and chairs set is studied to help save space and keep the house tidy and aesthetically pleasant.
Montessori chair: one product, many purposes
Babylodge® CUBOTTO can be used in three positions and fulfill multiple functions, according to the child’s age and movement skills:
Fig. 1) With low-height seating base, it is the ideal baby chair since first steps up to about 2 years of age.
Fig. 2) With medium-height seating base, it turns into a perfect kid’s chair for children aged 3-4.
Fig. 3) With high seating base, it is a practical stool for kids aged from 5 years (and adults as well!).
In this last position, it is ideal also as bedside table, amazing next to Babylodge® Montessori beds ARIA, NUVOLA and LUNA to host a lamp, a book or the favorite teddy bear, and as step stool, useful to reach “high surfaces” such as the washbasin or the kitchen top.
How it is made
CUBOTTO is entirely handcrafted in Italy, by Babylodge® experienced carpenters.
All employed wood is natural, PEFC™ or FSC-certified beech (What does it mean? Find out here for PEFC™ and here for FSC), to guarantee raw materials’ quality and safe sourcing. Babylodge® uses first selection beech wood only, coming from German or Swiss sustainably managed state forests (no China, no Eastern Europe).
In detail, CUBOTTO is made of:
frame structure: 100% natural, first selection solid beech wood;
board: a special, ultra-resistant, patented, one-of-a-kind micro-laminated beech.
For maximum safety, all CUBOTTO’s edges and corners are rounded by hand and checked one by one. Therefore, to enhance the completely natural essence of wood, no paint nor varnish are added: pure beech wood only.

CUBOTTO harmoniously combines with the whole Babylodge® furniture range, that it recalls both in materials and in the geometric proportions of volumes and sections.
All junctions are pre-assembled by our carpenters so that:
there are no visible fixings and the structure appears clean from any perspective;
no assembly operation is needed. Babylodge® CUBOTTO, in fact, is ready to use out of the box.
