RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Close cooperation with up-to-date kindergardens let us observe and understant the needs. What creativity tools are needed or what is wrong with already existing ones. Comparing different creative education methods and merging creative activites are found new ones and incorporated in new developing products. Observed existed objects let us avoid mistakes and create opportunity to offer not seen objects with minimalistic approach.

CHALLENGE:
When we created this divider we have a vision, that this object has to be minimalistic, abstract and would be a perfect base for creative young minds to flourish. The biggest challenge was - hinge. Majority of existing ready made hinges are rough, cold metal, industrial and we wanted that this one would be as as less noticeable as possible and has as little interest as possible for the small ones and I think we succeeded. Also interesting and creative challenge was little hols pattern and big hols positioning, because these hols are the main thing in this object. We wanted that this play space divider would be functional, interesting and inviting to investigate.
