"Ronis" is a toy designed for kids ages 6 -10 that allows them to mix and match to create an infinite number of structures to play with; from benches to tunnels, the possibilities are endless. The simplicity and modularity of the shape is what makes this possible.
Ronis are rotationally molded in LDPE (low density polyethylene) allowing them to be used both indoors and outdoors. The pieces attach to one another through a positive/negative joint, making it easy and fun for kids to put together on their own.
Ronis was submitted to the 2016 Collab Student Design competition at the Philadelphia Museum of the Arts and awarded second place (http://www.philamuseum.org/collab/).
Assignment: Design an object (a toy, piece of furniture or combination of the two) for a child, under the age of 10, which is predominantly made of a single material.
Materials: LDPE - Low density polyethylene plastic.
Process: Rotational Molding.
