Building stuff using Lego blocks is something a lot of us did as kids, we used the blocks to explore our curiosities and create giant unique plastic forms. With the TiKA kit it is very similar as it allows you to indulge in curiosity, but also plays on aesthetics as well.
The TiKA modular design kit packs in a lot of fun for the user. It allows them to dive into their skills involving geometry, structure, and aesthetics. This modular design kit comes with a base, magnetic balls, and sticks that magnetically attach to the joints. It’s sort of like a toy that anyone between ages 11 to 111 could enjoy, while being able to add stylish decor to your home too.
TiKA gives the user the ability to construct and test out their own structures. They can even create abstract skeletal frames, build unique trellises for plants, or even make your own abstract LED light source. The metal balls are what acts as joints, whereas the sticks that have neodymium magnets that run through and through. This means TiKA can conduct electricity and once you add the TiKA’s LED rod to the situation the abstract form is now transformed into an abstract light.
There are many different formats of TiKA such as the regular structure building kit, a planter building kit, as well as a lamp building kit.
All of these kits are made to be able to either be hung or stand alone, which makes TiKA extremely customizable to the user. Whether you want a jumbo design or something a lot smaller to put on your desk at work, these certainly outshine the Everblocks that are for sale on Ebay for functionality. Each kits base differs to its variant, for example the regular kit the base is wooden. And the lamp making kit comes with a wired base that has a dimmer switch. This allows you to set the mood at home by building your very own lamp and adjusting for mood lighting.
In conclusion, the TiKA kit tests and expands two things. One is your ability to create a stable and functional structure and your ability to create unique and aesthetically pleasing designs. There really are unlimited amounts of possibilities for structure design using these kits. And the cool part is whenever you feel like changing it up or your plant grows, you’re more than welcome to alter the design. The TiKA is much more than just some old toy, planter, or lamp. It allows you to create to your hearts desire and is one of the best visual tools that lets the user indulge in their inner designer for a sensible price too!
