Project #Zero (quote Smashing Pumpkins), was born as an error during the design of another kids game made of wood.

Because NVDRS is a design studio, we imagine #Zero not as a simple toy but like a real customizable project. Everyone can choose from alternative faces or bases with the help of  the NVDRS crew and they can also request the CAD file to create directly their own one. Just as an example, it is possible also to create accessories through 3D printing.

In fact #Zero consists of three separable pieces: Face, Body, Base. The simple shape encourages and invites also the more classic colouring customizations.

Height 9 cm (3.5 inch) made of resin.
It is available, at the moment, combinable in six different colours.

For the Milano Design Week 2016, NVDRS asked designers, graphic designers and illustrators to customize #Zero.

The Project #Zero | a designer toy exhibition took place at 150UP | Milan | Italy, with customizations by:
