Man and Activity

Ralf Frickel

In economically difficult times we feel that going out for a meal is too expensive and stay in to prepare a home-cooked meal. After dinner, the whole family will stay comfortably seated around the table and a need for some of that traditional Dutch sociability and cosiness will arise. Frickel has magically turned the shuffleboard, present in almost every household, into a Multi Shuffle. The functional object is a board with traditional Dutch games on one side, and when it is turned over it will serve as a chalkboard for children.
