Ludus Ludi

Ludus Ludi are games to develop the creativity, there are games for adults, also for kids, without rules, just to enjoy building beautiful structures.

Pico Pao is a workshop with a long history of craftsmanship that began in 1979 in Lubián, a small Spanish village nestled in the mountains on the border with Portugal. In the neighboring Portuguese county of Tras os Montes (“Beyond the Mountains”) the local woodpecker is known as Pico Pao (“Stick-Beak”). The song of this handsome green bird, which evokes the whinnying of a horse, alterna tes with the sound of his pecking at the trees as this resounds through the valley, blending in with the carpenters’ hammers as they work on the wooden roofs of the village houses. The old dwelling where the workshop originated offers a view of the entire valley, with wisps of smoke rising from the chimney tops and where every so often a Pico Pao can be seen flying gracefully towards the chestnut forests.

A ESCADA

A ESCADA is a ladder and a board. Together these elements come into balance.
Once the delicate balance between the ladder and the board is understood, it naturally becomes an open toy, allowing other elements to come into play and make it more complicated

Size of the ladder: 250x55x8mm

Size of the board: 80x40x8mm

Size of the box: 280x115x50mm

Weight: 146 gr.

Components and materials: A ladder and a board in wood

LAS SILLAS

LAS SILLAS The chair is an object that transcends its usefulness. It is not strictly another piece of furniture. A chair, to be truly a chair, must have been able to establish an affective bond with the one who uses it.

Weight: 600 gr.

Components and materials: 14 dissasembled chairs + 1 one already assembled ~ Compressed cardboard

LOS ARCOS

LOS ARCOS The game of the arches could also be called the game of strokes. Each piece is a line that can make drawings in the air, i.e. three-dimensional drawings. Drawing lines in the air and letting us marvel by the forms that are produced, letting us subject or attempt to push the bounda- ries of balance, interpret the unexpected abstract or figurative forms that emerge, that’s what the game consists of.

Size of box: 280x185x35mm

Weight: 1000 gr.

Components and materials: Material: MDF ea 8 Arcs in 4 different sizes and 4 cubes

MOSAICOS

MOSAICOS The triangle is the polygon with fewer number of sides that is possible to be done with straight lines. It ́s the most elementary polygon, the primary polygonal unit, the protocell with which we could cover an entire flat surface and compose the rest of the geometric figures.

Weight: 900 gr.

Components and materials: 72 triangles of Wood MDF Holder of wood MDF

LAS ESCUADRAS

This game, gives us a glimpse of the disturbing consequences that can result from this element’s ‘normality’ and ‘objectivity’ when a right angle, instead of being a simple figure devoid of meaning, functions as a kind of accident. A subtle turn, a change in order, a moment’s disturbance, toying with its obvious function; any such action is enough to transform it into a new event – one with unforeseeable consequences.

EL BALANCÍN

This game is based on two of the oldest and most basic play activities known: stacking and balancing. People have been playing with these elements since the dawn of time. Both possibilities – standing up or falling over – can be equally exciting. The first swing was created when one crossed branch was positioned over another branch. Soon after came the balancing scale, the wheel, the ball-bearing, articulated joints…..

This game helps us recapture our primitive sense of experimentation. The pieces are of seemingly arbitrary shapes such as you might find around a carpenter’s workbench. They are the sort of object that is bound to appeal to any neighborhood child, who is certain to see them as something to build with, owing to the material they’re made from (wood) and their form (random geometric shapes).

Los Cubos

he game uses a three-dimensional construction system in which flat, polygonal pieces with tongue-and-groove edges are used to build straight, regular-shaped prisms. These prisms can then be joined to other prisms, creating virtually unlimited series and forms in which the adjoining prisms can be built out in any directions desired. An important aspect of the system is the way in which the prisms are joined tangentially – by their edges – which leads to curious, unexpected optical impressions.
