Fantàsia is a toy for children developed in collaboration with Gabriele Lucchitta for the course “Basics of three-dimesional design studio” held by the architects Riccardo Varini and Massimo Barbierato.
The inspiration came from the book for children “Favole al telefono” written by Gianni Rodari. The project encourages children to play with light and shapes, carrying them in a magic world where they become directors of their tales or audience of parents animated narratives.
The structure is made by plywood and divided internally into three layers of PMMA. Through the use of neodymium magnets, it allows to compose the scenario with figurative and abstract shapes of wood. It gives the possibility to create prospective backgrounds or play with the overlap of several silhouettes.
The toy is designed to contain all the necessary pieces and to be easily transported and stored.
