Design 5

Voted one of Forbes' Top Ten Toys for Dads


Beautiful symmetries are even more striking with our elegant black and white struts and balls.


In Plato's Allegory of the Cave (Republic), he muses on education potential to enhance our natural ability to perceive reality. 

A very deep kit for you to delve into the difference between appearance and reality —Design 5 can be used to build striking “shadows” as well as the intriguing solid that casts them (the rhombic triacontahedron, discovered by Johannes Kepler).
Of course you can build a large number of other beautiful models as well.

Designed by our E.U. partners and fellow artists in hiding, Erwin Kotzab and Lyn Taylor. Includes 227 parts in a beautiful and stylish puzzle box”.

Our Design series line was voted as "Best of NY Toy Fair" by Popular Science in 2013. and selected as one of Forbes' Top Ten Toys for Dads
