Client: Boston Public Library
Location: Boston, MA
BPL asked us to design and fabricate playful elements that tied together the iconic BPL lions, with reading and play. We explored a number of concept options before landing on the 3D lion cubs. Perched atop the stacks in the Children’s Library, the interactivity of the lions can be programmed to suit different needs. Motion sensors in the tunnels beneath the lions make the cubs engaging and playful, while still respecting the nature of the library space. They’ve become a huge hit and are popular with library visitors young and old.
