The Offi Ovum Bassinet

Furniture company Offi, debuted their multifunctional bassinet at ICCF in New York this past weekend.

This bassinet is different from any others that I have ever seen and has the ability to be used in two positions.

The designer, Heidi Newell, wanted to communicate the care, joy and welcome that modern parents have for their newborns through the Ovum.

Ovum is a bassinet inspired by Shaker furniture tradition, modern design, and the needs of a new born baby and its parents. A baby never ceases to be the focus of the design, while parents are offered options for portability, and a rocking or standing base. The basket allows visibility of the baby from any angle in the room, fulfilling a need for parent’s verification that a baby is sleeping well while they work about the house. This tasteful design works in any room, has great economy for small spaces and enables parents to keep a baby nearby without disturbing their sleep.

I like the look of this bassinet and I know that if you had one, it would definitly be a conversation piece. My only concern is the babies comfort. The basket would have to be a good 3 feet in diameter for the baby to be comfortable if they decided to squirm around while they were sleeping. Dimensions are not currently available, but if it was a generous size I would be a fan.

I love the round crib idea because it allows the baby more room in all directions, so if this bassinet was wide enough your baby would benefit from the same concept and be more comfortable.
