MECCANO has been one of the most popular construction toys for children — known for its kit of metal parts that offer endless building possibilities. but as an adult, you don’t have to grow out of the hours of fun it offers. its simple assembly of parts has been licensed for production into large-scale, aimed at creating furniture that evolves with your home and personal needs.

presented at maison&objet 2015 in paris, MECCANO HOME is comprised of 20 modules in a variety of colors which have multiple functions, allowing you to construct a variety of furniture typologies (a chair, coffee table, console, standing table, stool etc…), all with the ease and simplicity which we know and associate with MECCANO.

just like the original games, MECCANO HOME meets specific perforation standards that are compatible with MECCANO’s familiar nut and screw system. this hardware sees the leg of a chair also being used for supporting a coffee table, or a stool. it is the nut, that was designed and built by the MECCANO HOME team which is at the center of the modular concept, allowing simplified assembly and dismantling of pieces without any damage. this hardware is available in eight different colors, interchangeable with the metal modules — all of which are treated and finished with the same paint used for outdoor furniture, ensuring resistance and durability.

  • perhaps a cross tie near the legs would make it more strong , looks cool

  • Yes, there should definitely be wheels! 🙂 That would let you create a useful wheelbarrow or trolley whenever you needed one, and turn the parts back into tables, shelves, etc. once you’d finished.

  • Perfect toy for grown-ups. But who is going to leave them alone? How long will it be before there are wheels and motors? A kitchen crane anybody?
