  • lekkees: Allowing Free Play to Rule

    Education, Industrial Design

    Design-21-post_177_

    lekkees was developed in collaboration with Marcos Stafne and Miriam Kessler from the New York Hall of Science

    Early childhood development toys and activities in institutional settings do not promote interaction among peers, lack possibility for imaginative interpretation, and full-body physical engagement.

    lekkees is a set of bendable geometric panels which connect in an endless assortment of configurations abstractly eluding to recognizable environments and objects.

    lekkees encourages more quality play by providing tools for children to visualize, imagine, and interactively build their surroundings. Allowing kids to engage in active play nurtures their social and cognitive development through the process of creative exploration

    My goal is to implement lekkees in institutional settings such as children's museums, day care centers, camps, and potentially schools.
