Kids2 Partners with Designworks, a BMW Group Company, to Further Excel Innovation and Design for Children’s Products
The Partnership Will Create & Provide Solutions For The Future Of Parenting
The goal of this partnership is to bring Kids2’s mission to life of helping create bright futures for families everywhere through tiny wins. In this case of “tiny wins”, through products which are efficient, practical, and sustainable—with parents and babies needs coming first.
Two key areas of innovation for Kids2 are “grow with me” and modular design to design efficient, multi-use products that grow with early-stage families. The result will be products that have longer lifetimes and extend from infant to pre-school years. Together, the Kids2 and Designworks teams have been pioneers within the parenting space, thinking outside the box and designing for the future of parenting needs.
Kids2’s Ingenuity™ brand has launched two products created from the partnership, the Ingenuity™ Beanstalk™ Baby to Big Kid 6-in-1 High Chair and the AnyWay Sway™ PowerAdapt™ Dual-Direction Portable Swing, which exemplify modular design and innovation in the category.
"This partnership is one-of-kind in our industry, and we are thrilled to join together a global team of designers and innovators to support bigger, better, and more efficient products for families,” said David Butler, Chief Growth Office of Kids2. “We’re fortunate to have linked with this amazing design company, which has enabled us to further extend our innovation and ability to reach more families across the globe with new, unique holistic solutions. We’re looking forward to what we design and launch together next.”
Kids2 and Designworks will look for ways to make parenting easier through intuitive gear design, connected solutions, multi-use grow-with-me designs, and more. Through its privately-owned manufacturing facility, WINVENTION, Kids2 will be able to easily carry out new innovation and design while maintaining premium quality.
“At Designworks, we are driven to make things better, not just different. Our design philosophy aligns well with Kids2’s ’grow with me’ approach, as it aims to change user behavior and keeps products in use longer", says André de Salis, Creative Director at Designworks. “We are looking forward to continuing this journey together with Kids2.”
