“HUGGY PRIME” CHILD CAR SEAT
Client: Inglesina Baby S.p.A. Design/Product: CHILD CAR SEAT Year: 2012/2013 First Stage Inglesina Baby S.p.A. Second Stage The project consisted in devising the structure for the “Huggy Prime” child car seat. This product would belong to the trio system based on the “Quad” frame commercialized by the client. In collaboration with the designer Giulio Simeone – who was entrusted with creating the aesthetics of the entire platform –and the technical personnel of Inglesina it was possible to promptly resolve any design complications and to maintain total consistency with the original concept. During the design process multiple considerations were taken into account. These included the possibility to use the child seat in the car as well as locked to the Quad frame, internal ventilation vis-à-vis lateral air intakes, the capability of removing the fabric lining entirely, and above all safety: Particular attention was paid in the design stage to protection in case of a variety of impacts. The seat was successfully subjected to the appropriate crash tests. As a result, the child seat is test-approved according to the ECE R44/04 regulation for the group 0+ (from 0 to 13kg of weight).
