This play space extends from the floor to the wall!

Lena Seow, Vrinda Khanna and Suzan Wines of I-Beam Design came up with this simple but brilliant design for a cafe in in Brooklyn, New York - a wall made of Lego base plates, allowing children to interact with their surroundings, every part of the space becoming a space for play.

Wines explains that children can build with or against gravity and that the child’s ability to impact the basic architecture of the play area by building on the wall is a large part of the appeal. “Everything a child builds becomes an integral part of the play space architecture until a new construction is made by someone else,” she says.

Other vertical play surfaces at Café Boobah include a huge floor to ceiling abacus, a chalkboard wall, a magnetic wall and a wall for drawing on with crayons.
