Habitadule, a modular cardboard construction game

On the basis of nesting construction games, the plastic artist Marie Compagnon imagined Habitabule for the publisher Mon Petit Art, a gigantic construction game made of cardboard that bends to the imagination of children. A blow of heart seen on the last Maison & Objet fair! Composed of 16 panels of 45x45 cm, Habitabule allows the creation of habitable structures such as a cabin, a cube, a theater or a house. The 16 panels are delivered flat with 64 connectors (fasteners) in a suitcase: very practical to be taken wherever you want. Layout plans and configuration examples will help children get started as architects. Once assembled, the structure defies the classic standards of construction games since it can reach two meters high; and all this with a low floor occupancy because the panels are thin, rigid and light. For better fun, round openings of different sizes have been drilled in the panels allowing play of shadows or seeing without being seen! Finally, in addition to unleashing the imagination of our children in XXL version, the construction toy is designed in FSC certified cardboard, from protected forests. Design idea: it's a building game but also a modular structure that allows you to structure the volumes. It can be mounted as a screen to isolate an office area or a sleeping area. Habitadule, Mon Petit Art edition designed by Marie Compagnon, exists in blue or red, on sale at Bon Marché, indicative price 79 euros. More info on www.monpetitart.com
