The ever-changing Nature is inarguably the greatest teacher to mankind. Nature gives abundance of wonders for us to see, to smell, to hear, to feel, to understand, and ultimately to learn from. But when was the last time you take your kids out just to feel the grass, rest under the tree shade, warmed by the sun, listen to the wind blow as the birds chirp and the squirrel plays? While there are so many good toys and games on the tables, we think children these days deserve a little bit more of that outdoor time.
Out there, nature is endlessly teaching us in so many ways but we are only viewing them through some screens, documentary or an encyclopedia, or just looking through a window of a car. We want the kids to take a closer look and learn more about nature in a deeper level and really see every small detail that makes every branch of nature so beautiful.
There's a lot to learn from ever changing nature, which gives abundance of interesting stuffs to trigger imagination and hands on knowledge. Playing with nature encourages physical movement, observational skills and imagination. Something that you would never get from a textbook.
The design is intended to be somewhat indefinite, so it is as open-ended as it possibly could. Along with the beautifully designed organic form and subtle colors, we tried to find the material which is most Eco-Friendly and is capable to deliver LOCOMO® with the most beautiful finish and touch. Thanks to PlanWood™ which is made from natural rubberwood sawdust, the sustainable material that brings our product concept to the optimum.
"LOCOMO" comes from the English word "LOCOMOTION" which has a double meaning "Moving from one place to another" whereas in science the locomotory parts referred to the parts used for MOVING for both animals (legs and arms) and plants (leaves, flowers and branches). And you guessed it… That's where the inspiration is from.
