Superlab with Luca Boscardin
Playing is a serious thing


Bruno Munari's quote "Playing is a serious thing" is the starting point of toy designer Luca Boscardin's Superlab. Whether it is games for children or structures for adults, the core principle of the workshop is to leave participants free to compose, to associate and build, to interpret the use and function of objects. Using spatial design principles such as juxtaposition, interlocking, balance, participants are invited to playfully experiment and transform an illustration, concept, thought or idea.
