Great Sense of Fun

A Sense Of Pinball Table by Soo Hyeon Goo

For those who think "interactive" means jabbing fingers on touchscreen devices, this pinball table designed by Soo Hyeon Goo is a useful reminder of the pleasures of actually touching and playing with different materials.

Entitled "A Sense Of", this riotously fun pinball table is part of Soo Hyeon Goo's mission to stimulate users' senses, in this case by building a two-player pinball machine with movable obstacles including bells and blocks made from different materials such as brass and rocks.  Moving the different blocks to redesign the board thus becomes a key part of the game; the pleasure of touching the different materials and hearing the sounds they make as the balls strike them almost as much fun as rigging the board in your favour.  We would play with this over our smartphones any day.

Soo Hyeon Goo is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (MA Design Products) and the A Sense Of pinball table is part of her graduation project.

Product Inspiration

For furniture that delights the senses try the lavishly upholstered Simone sofa from Missana and the rough but smooth Clay table in lava stone finish from Desalto.

   

The cool and shiny brass finish of the Flamingo lamp from Ghidini 1961 is in wonderful contrast to the naturalistic wood finish of the Chou table lamp from LZF.

 

We love the soft, tactile feel of the Crawl silicone container from Finell.  For a fun game using modular pieces try the Tangram 3D from Pico Pao.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
