  • Aconà Biconbì
    Originally conceived as a work of sculpture issued from Munari’s researches on the subject of multiples, Aconà Biconbì was manufactured as a “game” for the first time in 1961 by Danese. Aconà Biconbì is available in 4 different colours (red, blue, white and green). Its modules are made of circular disks with a hole in the middle, laterally folded so that they can be freely joined together. The result is a complex three-dimensional structure, that changes into unlimited combinations depending on the number of the modules and their disposition. Source of inspiration for many designers and artists worldwide, Aconà Biconbì has often been reinvented and “moulded” in several ways and with different materials. Box dimensions: 23 x 23 x 0,5 cm

  • Eight Sequences to Put in Order
    Designed in 1976 by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano, the game contains 52 cards that form eight sequences of images to be logically ordered: the sequences are made up of 3 to 10 cards, in an increasing order of difficulty. A little bird coming out of a cage, a house under construction, a plant that grows leaves and blooms: each card, corresponding to a passage in succession, contains different pieces of information which serve as clues to be interpreted, from the colour of the apple that ripens to the position of the sun in the sky. Each image leads to the reconstruction of the sequence and its meaning, training the child’s ability to form logical bonds. Starting from the fundamental idea of the game − the search for the right card to carry the series forward − you can invent many ways of using the cards, even in groups. Box dimensions: 15,5 x 15,5 x 3,5 cm
  • El notas
    Is it an inanimate object or is there something in it that gives it life? Could it be that he reminds us of the messenger boy, the newspaper vendor, the shoeshine or the apprentice of any number of jobs – one who depends on his arms and legs to carry out these menial jobs in order to scrape by? Where does our sympathy for an object come from? Where do our emotions spring from -weak and subtle as they may be – where if not from the emotions of life itself and the spirit that animates it?
  • Images of Reality
    Designed by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano, Images of reality contains 40 cards with photographs which feature a number of subjects seen from various points of view and in several ways. A shoe, a hand, a fish or a lightbulb can look very different if we observe them from different perspectives, or if we see them as changing objects, where the name is only one of the many possible representations. Comparing realistic colour photography to black and white photography, the photographic negative and the last step of the written word (in six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese), the game stimulates the learning of the differences between real objects and their representations. Box dimensions: 15,5 x 15,5 x 3,5 cm
  • Plus and Minus
    In 1968 Munari published The circus in the mist, in which he created fascinating images by using his own way the "seethrough" effect. The bright colours of the circus are preceded and followed by the veiled dullness of Milan’s fog: in this vague environment the blurred outlines of the figures become clear by leafing through the book. Two years later, in 1970, Munari dealt again with the theme of transparency by conceiving with Giovanni Belgrano Plus and Minus. Not a book but a game, composed by several images on transparent backgrounds, which can be superimposed and mixed at one’s pleasure by adding or removing them. In these square cards the colour is perfectly balanced with the drawing, and together they tell stories. Stories which are bonded together by the imagination of the players, who can create countless combinations using the suggestions at their disposal, without predetermined rules. Box Dimensions: 15,5 x 15,5 x 3,5 cm
