DESIGN_ Design is playful. The young Israeli designer Vered Venezia created a frisky "Hook-it collection" of hangers, inspired from toys by independent creators, which enhance exploration and creativity. The construction offers versatility that allows consumers to assemble their hanger according to individual imagination and needs. These racks, shelves, and hangers are designed to emulate simple, "automatic" children's toys - those that don't require instructions for playing with.
I wanted to bring the world of children's toys into the world of adults out of my sheer enjoyment of toys in general. We all know that in every adult there is a child who refuses to grow up, and research has shown that the need to play is an existential need in us from childhood through our later life.
From the research I've done on the development of toys, I found a method to encourage an educational environment that allows children to develop their skills. This approach includes games that encourage autonomous thought and freedom. Construction and assembly is without instructions and without fixed rules.
I was looking for parallels between the adult world and the game features-IKEA furniture exemplifies this use of the DIY method. The method strives to create a game with autonomous features. Building in this manner provides more than a simple assembly, but also pleasure, a sense of success, pride and challenge.
My project relates to the principles of autonomous gaming. These principles are reflected in the composition of the furniture and their suitability for the user, meaning that each user can mix and reassemble the furniture to best suit them. This ability to mix and match is the connection to the children's world of autonomous games.
