Russian artist Alexander Rodchenko famously once said: "Objects in our hands should also be equals, also be comrades." With that quote in mind, design studio Zupagrafika has created The Constructivists, a "build your own Russian constructivist playground" kit, with four press-out "cardboard comrades" to assemble, and no need for glue or scissors.
Founders David Navarro and Martyna Sobecka explain further: "It was alongside the rise of the Soviet era when the Russian avant-garde movement started one of the most influential creative revolutions in the 20th century. The Constructivists, forming part of this wave, rewrote the history of art, design and architecture, and their legacy still remains contemporary.
"This kit allows you to playfully shape your own avant-garde community with geometrical forms inspired by some of the most seminal examples of Russian constructivist architecture erected between early 1920s and mid-1930s, such as Melnikov House, Kirov Town Hall or Nikolaev`s House."
Designed especially for children (and parents) to engage them in a playful, interactive tour around the constructivist world of forms and colours, and practice their spatial imagination. Grab yourself a pack at zupagrafika.com.
