Inspired by light and darkness. A traditional game has been turned into a decorative item. The 40cm long sticks are made of hornbeam wood that is then coloured. By using the ring provided, they become a symbolic bunch of flowers. Fun and design combine in three shades: sea, sun and black & white.

Note from the designer Fabio Guaricci: "But why is that so important for a toy to be attractive for adults too? First, think about the last time you gave yourself a chance to play and, surprisingly, thought “Hey, that’s fun!”. Well, this is probably because we are said that “adults have to work, not to play”. So sometimes adults really forget about playing for ages, and, even worse, play itself is even considered something “childish”. Second, if adults are not willing to play, what about the extra learning-value of kids playing with adults? Shanghai is a hybrid object that changes its function depending on the intention of the user. As a toy it is a traditional chinese game, very easy rules, it requires concentration and very good fine motor skills. When it is not played, its wooden ring allows to compose its sticks to form a furniture accessory similar to a bunch of flowers."
