WOO Toys

By air, land or sea.

WOO Aeroplane, WOO Sailboat or WOO Bulldozer.

Love these toys - objects designed by Studio Vrtiška • Žák.

WOO may stand for interjection of motion, interjection of amazement, or an abbreviation coming out of english word WOOD.

By combination of massive wood, surface varnish and bent veneer they have achieved a great dynamic effect in these three vehicles, symbolising three natural elements.

Between Stockholm and Seoul

Playing with Hangul is an interesting toy designed by Kyuhyung Cho. These elements are playthings based on Korean alphabet, Hangul, to open the possibilities for the usages of letters.

Kyuhyung Cho is a designer, known for his great work in typography and furniture design. Love his Pocke Stools (and its playful forms), but also his Poke Hanger (inspired by a surrealist, René Magritte) or his Sine collection (a hanger system for clothing and accessories).

He also has a print line called Hey Poster. It’s a series of illustrations inspired by strangers in Stockholm. The curious big-eyed creatures featured in the prints look out across the room, engaging with whatever they can see.

Have you seen these wooden and minimalistic toys? They are from pol-eno, a new Czech brand of toys. I’ve discovered them thanks to Brichopas about toys.

DMOCH

image

Imagine that you walk on a beach and you collect your favourite stones.

Forms and shapes that give something back to the user in form of memories.

Love this totemic toys from Dmoch studio, designed to trigger children’s imagination. They are made of pine, elm, beech, birch wood and bags stuffed with rice, fabric from Kvadrat.

Dmoch is an interdisciplinary design studio founded by David Ericsson, Marcus Berg and Ania Pauser. They combine poetic ideas and  touches of humor, contemporary and historical ways to find unexplored areas of design.

Teresa Mobiles is another project from Dmoch.

They play with heaviness and lightness, the resilience on the metal wire and the counterweight on a beech wood podium.

Playing with balance

Build a tower, a small stone man or a wall. Build as it was done before. Christian Lessing brings some ancient techniques to your home. 

Don’t worry, you don’t need a large backyard. Just a little corner in your living room.

Christian Lessing designs interesting furniture, take a look at his Built a Sofa, but also small decoration articles and wooden toys. Humorous items that sometimes encourage people to stop and think a little while. 

Here are some of them:

Follies

Follies are sculptural towers of the 18th century in English parks. 

The aim of this game of skill is to balance the tower and pile all the 18 bricks on top of another. Played together, each one will try to place his bricks so that the other one makes it fall. Since the one that breaks it loses.

image

image

Wooden man

Have you seen some small stone men that mark the way? They are piled stones that resist gravity.

You will be able to create your own iconic piece of piling art with the wooden man by Lessing – experiencing gravity a little bit different.

image

image

The wall game

Build a masonry according to old technology and without mortar. Those ancient technique of building walls needs some skills and patience. This game is available in two versions: “cyclopean” with big and round pieces, “quarry stones” with smaller and angular pieces.
