OS kid's toys

LoFi Studio was asked to contribute to the OS kid's furniture project of Openstructures, which is part of the Adhocracy exhibition at Istanbul Design Biennal.

About Adhocracy:
“Welcome to the age of adhocracy. As the opposite of bureaucracy, adhocracy cuts across accepted conventions and power structures to capture opportunities, self-organize and develop new and unexpected methodologies of production. It inhabits the horizontal, rhizomatic realm of the network, in which innovation — resourceful, subversive, anti-dogmatic, spontaneous — can come from anywhere.”
(Joseph Grima)

The resulting object series aims at illustrating the various opportunities offered by an open modular system, that can adapt and grow. If the kid has outgrown its toys, the components can be reconfigured into another objects, such as a suitcase or a toolbox.
