Toy design company Everplay Labs has been awarded the prestigious IDEA by IDSA (Industrial Designers Society of America) design award for their innovative play space set, Superspace. Superspace won a GOLD award, the top prize in the Children’s Product Category which was announced during their annual awards Ceremony, which took place on September 13, 2022 in Seattle, Washington.
This is the second design award received by Everplay Labs in 2022, having already been awarded a GOLD in the Core 77 Design awards.
Founded by Ant Erwin, Craig Spencer and Charlie Post, Everplay Labs created the revolutionary Superspace, a modular magnetic play space for kids. Not only does it encourage creativity and open-ended construction play, Superspace is eco-friendly. Its felt panels are made using recycled PET bottles and the structure uses bamboo rods with a patent-pending magnetic locking system.
Ant Erwin, Joint Founder at Everplay Labs comments, “The response to Superspace from the design world has been utterly mind-blowing. We knew there was a gap in the market for a brand new modular play space for kids and we have worked hard to create Superspace that can be used in infinite different ways as well as being extended to grow with children.”
Craig Spencer, Joint Founder of Everplay Labs adds, “When we approached the design of Superspace, we wanted to create a product that ultimately provided huge play possibilities for kids but we also wanted to create a sophisticated design that would maximize its durability, aesthetic and of course its eco-friendly credentials.’
