“Combined with other elements, they can transform play into limitless scenarios. They can be part of mathematical, language and sensorial games, amongst others. Moreover, as this material is not structured, it allows for the bowls to be used in a broad number of ways.
The 12 bowls painted with 12 different colours result in a harmonious colour scale, which brings balance and great sense of aesthetics to children’s game and, consequently, a great sensitivity to beauty.
The bowls complement the heuristic game with actions such as filling up and emptying out, going through and loading, etc.
A bowl can be used to cover another bowl and, in that way, its content can be hidden or made to disappear.
“The wood we use comes from sustainable forests. We use beech and birch. Wood is the source that inspires us daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.
The dyes are based on water and non-toxic that comply with the European safety regulations of the Toy EN / 71-3: 2014 + A1: 2014 / 2013. Working with dyes and not with acrylic paints allows us to continue having contact with the wood who is noble and kind. The drawing of the vein, its nuances and touches, its own characteristics. The dye does not jump from the wood when it falls to the ground or when time passes because it penetrates deep inside the piece. Sometimes it can happen that by an excess of pigments some piece loses some color when coming in contact with the saliva, no problem, they are absolutely safe and non-toxic.
We work the color with true affection, the tones, how they degrade, how they change. Color comes from nature and connects us to it: the seasons, the changes of climate, in the sunlight. In our materials yellow, or green never go alone, always go with their set, yellow just for us would not make sense. The color also connects us to the emotions and to all that happens to us inside.”
