PLAY! is BCXSY’s kick-off project.
PLAY! consists of a collection of products that was conceived out of a desire to bring a sense of nostalgia and playfulness into the grown-up environment. Recognizable childhood motifs and patterns are reborn and remolded into new designs for furniture, lighting, and home ware.
PLAY! features unique hand-crafted products. Advanced materials and techniques are used in combination with traditional craft and high-quality elements.
