Subin Cho / Play Mat

Subin Cho
Subin Cho

Children do not always clean up their toys after the play time is over. It's up to the parents constantly to clean up. Conflicts between children and their parents will be halved if all of the toys are sorted out. A delightful combination of geometric shapes. When you fold the play mat after the play time, it becomes a toy box.
Almost circular when it's unfolded, and a neat hexagonal box when it's folded. A hexagon can carry the most with minimal line. The top is flat to play with toys, and the outside is convex to support as a box. It was done in a number of experiments on the deployment of truncated octahedron.
