Olivia Kid
Natural toys for children made with olive pomace and bio resin
Olivia Kid is an innovative design product that pays attention to the stimuli that children need in the age range between 3-5 years. It leaves free creativity without imposing defined morphologies or conditioning an idea or the child's imagination. Starting from the design of a geometric grid, I developed five characters taking advantage of the pure and only composition of geometric figures such as square, circle and triangle. After processing the shapes and sizes, I continued with the prototyping phase. With a tested and calculated dosage of olive pomace and bio resin, the mixture was poured in silicone moulds, made out of previous 3D prints of the shapes of the toys. Once dried, the toys were extracted from the moulds, smoothed from any edges and painted with water based colors. The five characters are composed of interchangeable heads and bodies with a simple joint formed by the neck, fixed and glued to the head.
