Feltro is a system of playful large-scale magnetic tiles and the first product offering from Feltro Inc. Born out of the observation that parents and children share the play environment, Feltro aims to harmonize open-ended play within the context of a sophisticated design setting. Driven by its versatility and adaptability, Feltro has been endlessly interpreted by families, educators, interior designers, and organizations that strive to create engaging and inspired environments. Thanks to the inventiveness of the Feltro community, including people like you, these tiles continue to captivate through play, and come alive in new contexts.
The Feltro system came to life with an expressed interest in exploring the intersection between creativity, play and design within the shared family living space. Named after this colourful and tactile system of building tiles, Feltro Inc. continues to develop a family of products and experiences through experimentation and iterative prototyping, paired with research in materials and manufacturing processes. We aim to design objects that provoke curiosity, interactivity and open-ended play.You’ll often find us working in-house or promoting Feltro at a workshop or event. Our studio is located in Toronto, Canada.
Feltro was created by industrial designer, Sam Kennedy, who found an avenue to combine his love of materials and hands-on making with a curiosity for play within the shared family living space. Many of the distinct stylistic and illustrated elements associated with Feltro were developed by illustrator Adam Hilborn, and photographed by Si Hoang.
We welcome connections, collaboration and are always looking for the right people to join our team.
