Educating children through play: could be Fredun Shapur’s motto. A discreet and yet iconic artist in the 1960s, he created a broad range of wooden objects for children. Both aesthetic and creative, these toys recall the days of our parents where wood and primary colours were honoured. Their spirit recalls that of the Italian Bruno Munari, where minimalism and design go hand in hand. This book published by Piqpoq, pays tribute to his work, allowing us to discover his brilliant but somewhat forgotten creations again. A delight for the eyes!
