Form/Impact/Context

Form
The Seed Pli is only 83 x 58 x 20 cm, which makes it fit into the trunk of most of the small cars on the market. The inspiration is drawn from places like the Middle East, where babies are carried on the side of a camel, from the turtle, which is soft, but can be pulled into a hard shell, from aircraft, where the wheels can be folded into the airplane - and finally from a racing bike where the tires are easily turned. Everything about the pram can be recycled and all parts are produced with fair-trade and energy saving measurements. Seed Pli has followed the directions from the car industry and have given all plastic spare parts code numbers so that they can be reused in a proper manner or disposed of in an environmentally safe way. Seed Pli’s has passed all relevant standards, including the European EN 1888, the German TüV and the British BS. As part of the German GS test, the TüV Institute has audited the environmental standards and labour conditions of Seed’s suppliers.
