Wikipedia tells us that, in ancient Rome, “the Latin word ludus (plural ludi) has several meanings: play, game, sport, training.” An appropriate name for Spanish firm Pico Pao to choose for their newest line of table top games: featuring miniature furniture (and ladders). We’ve featured three of this collection: Los Taburetes (The Stools), Las Sillas (The Chairs) and Las Escalares (The Ladders). Each set has its own appeal and design challenges! The finished products, temporary as they are, become sculptural works of art. These games have no rules – they are free form building games. You make your own rules – who can build the highest, the widest, the most attachments. Play on your own or play in a team. Each set comes with multiple pieces: the ladders have 16, the chairs in sets of 15 or 29, the stools in sets of 12 or 20. What will you build?
The stools have multicolored tops.
Las Sillas – The Chairs:
Talk about your stackable chairs!
Las Escalares – The Ladders:
The ladders above remind us of The Golden Gate Bridge!
