About

 

We invite you to take some time to browse our leading brand products and services.  

We are excited to be the first representative of  PLAY + furnishings and projects in Australia and New Zealand. 

Our PLAY+ range of furnishings and interior design projects make a significant contribution towards creating complex and stimulating environments where children can experience the adventure of learning and  explore new ways of inhabiting spaces.

Cocoon Play Concepts have been inspired by an ongoing partnership with  PLAY+  - a company that works in collaboration with internationally renowned architects, designers, artists, educators and psychologists, and also the research and experience of Reggio Children in Italy.

Our products and services include:

  1. Furnishings
  2. Interior Design and Architecture Projects
  3. Professional Development

Our world-leading PLAY+  furnishing ranges are manufactured in Italy and are a result of a 4 year research project with the pedagogical consultancy of Reggio Children. 

In addition, we represent PLAY + PROJECTS, and our Italian team can provide specialist interiors and architecture services for education and public space projects.

We customise professional development solutions to maximise reflection and practices that interweave pedagogical concepts into learning environments.

We are committed to promoting sustainable practices in our supply chain.

The elements in our PLAY+ ranges are covered in an environmentally friendly synthetic fabric that complies with safety standards and made from non-polluting production processes and do not release harmful substances during its use.  
Our products are easily cleaned with mild liquid detergent and warm water.

QUOTING

Designing a new or existing playspace requires attention to detail and by adding too much or making ad hoc additions over a long term period with no plan can easily lead to a lack of coherence.

Once you have sent us your items for a quote we will provide an obligation free quote within 24 hours.

This will be helpful when preparing budgets or funding.

This will also show how discounts apply for larger orders, according to total volume. 

All quotes will be  in $AU, will be valid for 30 days and exclusive of freight  and government charges (GST; Duty).

The final price depends on location, transport costs and local taxes. We discount for larger orders, according to total volume.

ORDERING AND DELIVERY

All of our products are custom made.

Each order can customise colour selections from the colour palette.

Manufacturing usually takes 4 weeks for soft furniture, and 6 weeks for solid and bespoke furniture. Delivery will then take 6-8 weeks.

Our indent purchasing process means freight charges are kept to a minimum, by waiting for a full container before shipment. These occur usually each six months.
Discussions on the best freight solution will occur before confirmation of any orders. 

PAYMENT OPTIONS

All orders are confirmed in writing once 100% of the total cost of the goods has been received/

We accept all major credit cards and will discuss 'Pay as You Go' and Hire Contracts  as required.

Maurizio Fontanili | Director PLAY + srl

Maurizio, Director of PLAY+, leads our Italian team, and he puts research as the primary value of his business.

He likes to say," that no school can be equal to each other, because each has characteristics that are unique. For these reasons, my schools are all furnished differently".
