winners of the hangeul idea award, craft combine has created a playful spinning top influenced by hangeul (korean characters). according to the designers, these characters are symmetrical and are aesthetically geometric shapes. two types of hardwood create a unique blend of colors when the top is spun on a table or other flat surfaces.

top-spinning design motivated the consonant of hangeul (ㅅ,ㅇ,ㅊ,ㅍ,ㅎ)

 

by playing with traditional tops, one can learn and get used to hangeul easily. the intent of the product is to encourage non-native speakers to accustom themselves with the korean alphabet. ‘it would be a good product for foreigners and kids, who do not know hangeul well,’ say the designers at craft combine.
