About

Proyecto Ensamble is the first compilation Art Toy-Zine featuring contemporary artists & designer made in Chile. DIY Platform toy & 3D building block.

This initiative starts with the idea of reformulating the function that has been given to paper toys or paper figures. Observing the antique origami technique and the kaleidocycles of M.C.Escher, we propose a simple form that can be characterize, ensemble and can form complex forms.

This 3d building block can be customized or modified artistically by designers, architects, artists, engineers, kids, etc. When it’s made of paper, its final goal is to present different artistic points of view by means of this 3d building block and to merge them to create one single piece of artwork which intention will depend on what each individual artwork communicate. But when its made of other materials, the projects flexibilize and the volume became part of a structure with a different purpose when experimenting with materiality, scale and functionality.

The pieces where conceived from a rectangle, and this rectangle is immerse in the Golden Ratio or Sectio Aurea, given its immanent properties to the nature of things. So this canvas will work individually or as modules of a larger structure that will interrelate by two points of union located in the same figure to form a non default system that shows and arrange the artworks.

"This unique customizable platform is an interlocking design made to interact with itself like a 3D building block. It is most commonly seen as a paper toy, though can be printed on a variety of materials for use by customizers." - Clutter Magazine Designer Toy Awards -

A toyzine is a magazine (or paper that ships flat and is mailed on a serialized basis) that can be folded up into a toy. In this case, the toys work like building blocks that can stack and interlock with one another.
