It’s August and everyone is (or wants to be) on vacation, including yours truly. So how about kicking it fold’school? Here’s a post that’s easy to read, and gives you a lot of ideas for fun-times with the kids this Fall.
Here are three artists doing some pretty sophisticated papercraft for kids 3 and up – TUCHINO KIDS, FOLDSCHOOL, and PAPER PUNK.
Fig 1 – “Bob” by Tuschino Kids. Osaka born designer Masahiro Minami is responsible for these recyclable works of art – some already in production, but a few are still prototypes.
TUCHINOCO is a brand of children’s goods which made from reinforced corrugated fibreboard. Designer Minami’s theme, which “nobody has seen until now” , is to develop playground equipment from reinforced fibreboard. (umm…indoor play only!?).
Fig 2 – Chair for kids 4-8. Foldschool is a collection of free cardboard furniture for kids, handmade by you. The downloadable patterns can be printed out with any printer. Follow the instructions and assemble a stable piece of furniture.
The furniture available through FOLDSCHOOL is designed by Swiss-based architect Nicola Enrico Stäubli. He is living and working as an independent architect, designer and bike messenger. Foldschool is his first mass product, cardboard furniture hand-crafted by the consumer.
Fig 3 – PAPER PUNK is a system of paper blocks that allow you to create spectacular looking paper toys and art forms with a few simple folds.
Consider PAPER PUNK as building blocks for your imagination. It’s easy to use (everything you need is included) and very educational (spatial and dimensional thinking, motor skills, math, science, etc.), Paper Punk is a project of San Francisco professor and publisher Grace Hawthorne. Check out her video on Kickstarter.
