BERNHARD | BURKARD has designed a joyful marble run for kids and adults. The entire set consists of 12 magnetic planes in different simple shapes and colors. It allows the user to create an intinite variety of paths on a magnetic surface.
A game such as Plama can also inspire young children to be more creative or develop their logical thinking skills while creating a marble run.

About BERNHARD | BURKARD GmbH
The Swiss design studio BERNHARD | BURKARD was established in 2010 by Fabian Bernhard and Thomas Burkard.
During their time together as students they soon realized the potential that derives from the synergy of their individual skills and approaches to design. Their comprehensive experience and excellent network enables BERNHARD | BURKARD to accomplish a project from conception and formal elaboration to technical realization. Their focus lies on both innovative and creative solutions that are at the same time highly esthetic and an appropriate resource management. Design starts with a call for change. Besides technical skills it needs curiosity and the will to face the world with open eyes. Beyond styling and optical dressing contemporary design, as a process for products and communication, can generate the additional benefit that leads to sustainable success for all users.
While the toy is not in use, it cleverly forms a rectangular shape that can act as abstract wall art.
