Playsam have been making wonderful wooden toys since 1984 and have become one of the leading design companies in Scandinavia. They are a very small team that punch above their weight creating instantly recognisable designs whose beautiful sleek lines grace the collections of many design museums around the world. Made mostly from wood, metal and with the occasional plastic crash helmet Playsam achieve their unique finish through nothing more technical than hard work and skill. The deep gloss is created by applying many coats of paint to a perfectly prepared surface until the object takes on an almost super real quality. Holding a Playsam toy is a surreal pleasure one enjoyed both by adult collectors and children alike. Classic and contemporary, fanciful and functional, simple and sophisticated, these characteristics may seem slightly contradictory but Playsam firmly believe that contradiction is the key to success. Playsam is a small company with a big name.
