            At Castlecrag, Sydney (June, 2016)


KAPLA came into existence during the construction of a castle in the South of France. It is the story of an architect's adventure.
In order to plan out the construction work and visualize the future castle, Tom van der Bruggen, the inventor of Kapla, started trimming maritime pine into planks to build a model. Kapla was the result, a plank with perfect proportions that makes an ideal compromise between bricks and beams.
These planks offreed endless building possibilities. Tom named them KAPLA for "KAbouter PLAnkje" gnome planks in Dutch.
