+PLAY Puts Focus on Play and Learning
+PLAY is a new design company that combines play and learning, creativity and technology. In services and product designs, the physical and the digital space are connected. Play teaches us to think creatively and critically, to collaborate across disciplines. Play in itself is motivating and motivates to play more, learn more.
+PLAY is a collaboration between experience designer Tatiana Lyng Obel, who – with insights in children's development, needs and their world view – has developed cutting-edge digital projects for large media companies and game producers, and Rosan Bosch Studio, that designs innovative learning environments and with +PLAY now will be offering digital learning experiences.
Rosan Bosch, creative director of Rosan Bosch Studio and partner in +PLAY: "We are born as playful beings. Play is driven by curiosity, wonder, exploration, transformation and creativity. We explore, learn and create. We are born to learn in this way, and we want to use this potential for better learning experiences.”
Play is not only for children and teenagers. When we play, we break down norms and habitual thinking, we explore with curiosity and are actively creative, without fear of failing. The motivation to learn throughout life is more important than ever. For both children, adolescents and grown-ups, play can be an aid to overcome obstacles and develop new skills. Play can also work as a catalysator for creating new social connections that reduce loneliness. Learning through playful experience design is for all ages.
Tatiana Lyng Obel, experience designer and partner in +PLAY: ”There is great potential in creating meaningful and holistic solutions that address real issues and fundamental human needs. To create the most innovative and useful design solutions, we need to put human nature first in the development of new technologies."
With a focus on learning ages and stages, +PLAY works to develop processes and products that make adults, children and teenager robust and independent world citizens who can contribute to collaborations and surprise with innovative ideas and solutions. We work with open-ended play, humor, storytelling, connected play experiences and games. Play offers a safe setting where you can take risks, fail and try again – and learn.
+PLAY works in a new era of play design by combining play and human needs in both design processes and final designs, with a focus on originality and high user value. The design processes involve the latest research and insight into mental and physical health. +PLAY delivers strategic recommendations and designs, facilitates design workshops and solves tasks within digital learning, game development, toys, cross-media storytelling and communication concepts.
