Home > Winners > #103016


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Kayoni

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Construction Set

INSPIRATION:
To create a visionary modular system customed to competencies of various age groups and different from conventional thinking. A concept aimed to inspire and stimulate, and to creatively develop, selected compe-tencies, skills and logic through playing and fun, and which would advance also social interaction and developing of social skills. From that Kayoni evolved addressing by its EVA (eva) material blocks, series and concept the age groups of toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
By means of vision, applied technology, precision tools and a tight mathematical design concept, is bridging the range of Kayoni-blocks. A modular system demonstra-ting unique and high versatility in construction and assembly possibilities and allowing vertical, horizontal as well as angled assembly of blocks - simply by blocks. Kayoni has challenged known construction set concepts and is pushing boundaries. Kayoni is designed to stimulate creativity, learning and logic through playing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Kayoni in eva is of various forms, sizes and colors given a 50 mm modulo. Interconnecting pins and pockets allows assembly in multiple orientations with limitless opportunities. Kayoni in eva comes in sets of 8 to 72 blocks with illustrated assemblies. Kayoni stimulate learning, selected competencies and skill building through playing and facilitate interaction and developing of social skills. Kayoni in eva is suitable to toddlers, kids, children and parents anywhere - home or kindergarten.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Kayoni-project initiated in Copenhagen, Denmark end 2016. First time exhibited in selected sneak pre-views of its eva-series at the KL Children and Youth Congress in Aalborg, Denmark January 2019. In October 2019 Kayoni was commercially introduced to market in its first, ready to launch, eva series.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Kayoni eva's are shaped by precision laser and water jet cutting. Blocks are based on a 50 x 50 x 50 mm cube modulo, from 5 cubes to create a plus-shaped block to 8 cubes in the largest block. Cube dimensional tolerance is 1mm facilitating multiple orientation assembly of blocks. High grade eva-rubbers in palette colors are used. In process quality controls and lab testing of raw materials and fof inished blocks assures non-presence of i.e. prohibited Phthalates as per children toys regulations.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Kayoni in eva varies in size from 50 x 150 x 100 mm in cubed dimension of the smallest to 50 x 150 x 200 mm of the largest. Dimensions and contents of a set depends on the variety and quantity of Kayoni-blocks included. The smallest product cotton bag measuring 350 x 400mm and the largest 500 x 700 mm. Product bags are optimized for a transport carton measuring 194 x 585 x 585 mm for stacking on transports pallets for optimized logistics.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Objective: To create a toy series inspiring creativity and learning. Tests made on materials and on technologies. 9 eva composites tested on properties and compliance. 11 precision laser and water jets were tested. Tests of compounds, colorants, finished products and packing materials made by labs. Marketing research - focus groups, and user acceptance testing in market together with literature, labs, engineers, graphic designers and pedagogues contributing insights, input and feedbacks.

CHALLENGE:
To create a versatile construction set of quality and dura-bility in materials of good hygiene and safety properties. This realized by a tight mathematics design and by high precision requirements to manufacturing tools and thorough understanding of material properties and closed foam cell structures together with assessments of feasible technologies, accuracy laser and water cutting given a 50 mm cube dimensional modulo. Finally, trademarks and design patents registrations took time.
