A toy, a game, a sculpture

This geometric paper toy was first conceived as a work of sculpture during Munari’s research on the subject of multiples. Because of the wonderful playfulness it brings, it was made as a ‘game’ in 1961. Circular disks with a hole in the middle can be folded and joined together to create unlimited combinations of 3-dimensional structures. Aconà Biconbì has inspired many designers and artists worldwide.

Enjoy the beauty and fun of geometry with this sculptural game – simple & complex at the same time!

10 paper disks with a single color on one side and silver on the other side
Each disk 8.66” diameter
Also available in Red & Blue

Bruno Munari

Bruno Munari (October 24, 1907 in Milan – September 30, 1998 in Milan) was an Italian artist, designer, and inventor who contributed fundamentals to many fields of visual arts (painting, sculpture, film, industrial design, graphic design) in modernism, futurism, and concrete art, and in non visual arts (literature, poetry) with his research on games, didactic method, movement, tactile learning, kinesthetic learning, and creativity.

Bruno Munari joined the ‘Second’ Italian Futurist movement in Italy led by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in the late 1920s. During this period, Munari contributed collages to Italian magazines, some of them highly propagandist, and created sculptural works which would unfold in the coming decades including his useless machines, and his abstract-geometrical works.[2] After World War II Munari disassociated himself with Italian Futurism because of its proto-Fascist connotations.
