YOYO Khayyám

Playful logic

Logic and Fun

just impossible is impossible!

As a long-running tradition at Phoenix Design in Stuttgart, at the end of their internship, every intern has to design a yo-yo. The designer has 48 hours to design and build the yo-yo on his own and then present it to the members of Phoenix Design. My idea was to design a yo-yo in a way that redefines this traditional toy with a geometry that would look impossible and seems to defy the the physical law of gravity. Destructing any kind of stereotype preconceptions about a yoyo. even if all the yoyos have been made symmetric, it doesn’t make it common sense!

nothing is as practical as a good theory!
