F A M A L A M stages engaging events spanning art, creativity and social good for children and parents navigating parenting and play in the 21st century
This exhibition design and identity comes from Italy-based Mathery Studio and was created as part of the Hangzhou International Design Week in China. An interactive space for kids set up in a shopping mall, Tubo is made up of a series of white-framed, food-shaped structures and surrounded by perforated walls.
Like a magnified pin board, the space looks sparse but still kid-friendly and fun, with pools of colourful foam tubes taking over the space. The idea is for children to “fill up the holes of the structures using the foam tubes,” the studio says. “They can stick, tie and slot them in however they like to create a 3D colouring effect.”
