Playful familiarity

We believe the best designs are informed by the user, this thinking informs all of our work. This range of teethers is no different, they have been designed based upon the average diameter of a child’s finger, promoting natural teething and providing comfort. As with the Feeding Bottle and the rest of the Borrn range, our goal to ensure optimum hygiene informed our material choice. In this case we have utilised medical-grade, BPA-free silicone.

Aesthetically, the full range has been designed to emphasise a consistent design language of simplicity and playfulness. The full range of nine animals has been designed following simple rules; the bodies are always circular, and the personality is achieved with straight lines that exit from the circumference of the body.

Maintaining the minimal aesthetic, eyes are depicted with small balls which double as a teething aid.
