Pedagogical Toy


My studies at Bauhaus University have had a strong influence over my imaginary, especially the Bauhaus artistic theories and applications revolving around primary shapes (triangle, square, circle) and primary colours (yellow, red, blue). Logos, as well as primary shapes, tend towards purity and simplicity. They strongly act in the collective imaginary and are easily recognizable by children at a young age, even before these learn to read and write. This is the redesign of a classic pedagogical toy for babies and toddlers which normally uses primary shapes and primary colours for playing and learning. Part of the Bauhaus Revisited project, that includes a few other objects.

This wooden prototype was produced with a laser cutting machine at Fablab Amsterdam.
