tomogram playfully crafts a colorful stack-toy collection


design studio tomogram has recently designed a playful and exclusive collection of toys made of various materials, shapes, and color combinations. this special edition entitled ‘tomogram toys’ is a happy reminder of childhood creativity and playfulness — emphasizing individual personality for a diversity of people.

colorful collection of toys



tomogram‘s latest creation gives users the choice to assemble or disassemble various parts of the objects, thus creating individualized toy designs. the components of the playful items are largely divided into a head, torso, nose or mouth, and legs. these can easily be separated and re-combined since they were manufactured with a tab.

based on the shapes created through a lathing process, various materials such as wood, stone, resin, and ivory were researched and applied in the fabrication of the toys. for better quality, coloring and finishing appropriate for the nature of each part were added. furthermore, the choice of hard-surfaced materials like wood or stone also allow users to paint over them and create more personalized pieces.

what truly characterizes this collection is its incredible combinations of colors — from pastels to striking red — and diversity of materials, from smooth textured ivory to grainy stone surfaces. some examples of variteties include: wood+gold, ivory+skyblue+ pink, all-red and all-white.
