Plattenbau

Learning Material and Toy

Manufacturer

Plattenbau, Erfurt, Germany

In-house design

Plattenbau is a cube assembled from 25 softly polished fine wood components. It is both a learning element and a toy at the same time. Its individual components can be assembled and combined in all different ways. Due to the haptic and intelligent construction of ever new forms, not only the perception of space qualities and the orientation in space are trained, but also the skills in abstract and strategic thinking. Plattenbau sees itself as an homage to the space concept of early Bauhaus and as a learning tool which serves the comprehension of complex relativities.

Statement by the jury

»This toy and learning aid impresses with its simplified new interpretation of the well-known modular principle by means of which the spatial imagination is trained.«
