Contemplative toys for adults

Ingrid Hulskamp  describes herself as a ‘design poet’ . 
« My aim is to enchant people with the use of poetic, playful and sophisticated design. »

 « I have developed a series of contemplative toys for adults. The luxurious objects, made from hand-blown glass, remind us of the candid fun we had as a child, when we were able to fully get caught up in the moment.(…) I have created three different sensory experiences: a tactile experience using hand-blown glass, wood, brass plated gold and textiles; a visual experience using coloured pigments that transform when you start playing with the object; a sonic experience through the movement of water and glass balls.
