When you grasp a fine wooden OPIP tile, with pleasantly chamfered edges and a combination of fir and poplar wood, you get the natural – almost instinctive – urge to thoroughly examine it with your fingers. And then you discover that there is a different material on one side: sand paper, corrugated cardboard, felt… It’s interesting to discover various materials and exciting to feel them without looking.
OPIP consists of 16 wooden frames that have a particular material inserted on one side (8 different materials, therefore 8 pairs to identify).
In order to develop free creativity, the tiles can be used for various other activities such as making rows of items, from the finest to the roughest, guessing materials etc.
A hurried society makes one forget many things: spending time with each other, playing, listening, touching, enjoying natural elements, coming back into touch with oneself through handiwork. . We designed OPIP to help us all to remember, in a simple and fun way, all that we forgot.
The wooden tiles were made in the Đogić Art woodworking atelier in Zagreb and are delivered in cotton bags sewn in the Kamensko women’s association in Zagreb Locally and with love.
We are looking forward to staying in touch with all the players who may want to contact us, so that we can find out which games they will have come up with using OPIP, and so that we can share and spread the newly discovered joy.
