Nestt: a car seat designed for the 21st century
March 6, 2008 Innovative industrial design company think/thing has designed a car seat which is not only functional but also ticks all the boxes in terms of beauty and design. The colorful egg-shaped Nestt is a safe and easy-to-use car seat for your baby or toddler. The unique design features a cast-metal base which snaps into the car’s latch system and allows you to swivel the seat with one hand and rotate it towards the car door. If you’ve ever tried to put a squirming child into a car seat you will immediately see the benefits of being able to swivel them towards you to secure or release them.
The seat has a safety feature which stops the seat from disengaging and the embedded steel cage within two shells is shock absorbent and provides side impact protection. The Nestt can also be tilted and has self-retractable seatbelts so your child will have some freedom to move but will be kept safe in an accident. The seatbelts are also indexed, meaning you won’t have to change them every time your child has a growth spurt.
The seats are made from a closed cell polymer and the material is easy to clean and is breathable and soft due to the incorporated air-pockets. The seat pads come in a variety of colors and sizes which can be swapped and changed according to the size and body shape of the child. Made of memory foam, the seat pads can be designed and arranged in any variety of pattern and color, allowing you to have a unique seat or match the interior of your car.
With very few moving parts and easy installation, you won’t need the massive installation or instruction guide which comes with other car seats and Nestt meets the US federal vehicle safety standards.
Nestt should be in production soon and can be expected in stores later in the year.
