by Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack for Naef

Play; using one's senses (site, touch, and sound) to interact with an object while experiencing the changes in light and shadow, proportion and rhythm, depth of field, etc.

The objective for Naef toys is to produce play objects that unify quality design and superior swiss craftsmanship. This has been their focus for more than 50 years and will remain their goal well into the future. Naef demands extreme precision and quality in the manufacturing of their Swiss Made objects. Each product is inspected by hand before being packaged and shipped to customers all over the world.

Naef quailty products begin by specifically selecting woods that will not shrink or warp and will remain durable over time. All of Naef's painted products are made using non-toxic varnishes or clear coats.

Fascination of colour... The optical mixer of colours shows how an optical colour mixture is produced whenrotating the spinning top. Aspects of colour theory can be experienced with the interchangeable seven cardboard discs. The colour circles according to Goethe, Schopenhauer and Hölzel can be rotated and then compared with each other. Information describing the phenomenon can be found on the back of the discs.
