This project was made in collaboration with Xinyi (Clementine) Chang
Hexity | Building Homes for Small Beings
This is a project where me and a team mate worked with 2 co-designers to create a toy de- signed specifically for them. Our co-designers were Ren (a five year old girl) and Johnny (a three and a half year old boy). We met with them regularly to understand their needs and the way they liked to play.
The design includes a system to enable rearranging of the hexagons which uses hair elastics. We incorporated this because we wanted Ren and Johnny to be able to replace any broken elastics easily without having to buy specific parts.
