In today’s technologically advanced society, tablets are replacing quality family time at gatherings and meals. In Hong Kong, even the excitement of using origami to transform chopstick wrappers into chopstick holders during dim sum is being replaced with a fight for screen time.
Made out of off-cut wood from timber shops, ‘HOXY’ is a meal time-friendly 4-module building block set to bring back the pre-meal family time: table space can be customised by interlocking different modular combinations to enable children and parents to build their own chopstick holders, trees, animals or imaginary towers, bringing back tangible play experiences to family mealtimes.
