In a world overrun by straight lines and square buildings, toymaker
Mike Wong seeks to bend the rules and create with curves. He launched
IKOS Toys as a gateway to inspire future engineers and artists.
The idea for IKOS emerged when Mike Wong returned to his alma
mater, Park City High School, and began mentoring students interested
in working with industry outside of the classroom. Utilizing desktop
3D printing they designed IKOS, a modular, spherical building toy for
creators of all ages that can be manufactured out of 100% recycled
HDPE. Linking IKOS building blocks together, users can create
everything from a full sphere to abstract creations and 3D puzzles.
Mathematically, a sphere embodies the principle of conservation
by using 20% less material to hold the same amount of volume as a
rectangular structure. Wong hopes that IKOS Toys will help spread
this knowledge in a simple and fun manner that will inspire future
generations to conserve resources and sustain the planet.
