Abstract
This bachelor degree project in industrial design started
out with the theme and focus on colour. How we
surround ourselves with it, wear it, feel about it and
what it can mean in different cultures and countries.
When experimenting with shapes and colour of familiar
objects the conclusion was that shapes, colour and
material goes hand in hand and one cannot be looked
at without considering the other. That lead to the decision
of making a collection of familiar games where
the use of colour, shape and material has been altered

The result is a chess game where the familiar shape of
the pieces has been eliminated and replaced with pieces
in same dimensions, the only way to differentiate
them is by their weights. Secondly, a puzzle where the
original version of having a picture or reference on
top of the puzzle has been removed and made transparent.
The only way to finish the puzzle is by matching
the colours on the pieces’ sides. Lastly, a join-together
game where the classic set up of arranging four
markers in same colour together in a row has been
replaced with arranging shape instead.

All of them fully playable and colourfully fun. (Less)
