Habitus loves… Toys for grown-ups

One of the greats of mid-century design, Alexander Girard once said: “Toys represent a microcosm of man’s world and dreams; they exhibit fantasy, imagination, humour and love. They are an invaluable record and expression of man’s ingenious unsophisticated imagination.” We agree, and so we’ve rounded up our favourite toys for grown ups – and a few for kids that we just really love. Forget Barbie dolls, toy cars, and brightly coloured plastic play-kitchens, and let these beautifully crafted toys bring out your inner child.

Habitus loves… Digital Design

According to the dictionary, digital means: (of signals or data) expressed as series of the digits 0 and 1, typically represented by values of a physical quantity such as voltage or magnetic polarization. Of course we have absolutely no idea what this means either, but we do know that we love the futuristic aesthetic of digital devices. By Stephen Lacey.
