About the project
"The yo-yo is believed to be the second oldest toy in the world, with its first historical record dating back to 500 B.C. For thousands of years, yo-yos have served the purpose of bringing joy to people. A simple toy that when matched with a creative mind, can fulfil this purpose to both the player and the observers. Over the years, developments in the mechanics and aesthetics of the yo-yo have broadened the scope of how the joy is delivered. What was once just a spinning disc on a string is now a beautiful piece of art that can be used as a tool for infinite creativity. In my collaboration with the Louis 200 project, I wanted to touch on all aspects of how a yo-yo can serve its purpose and bring joy. First, by creating a luxurious yo-yo that can be enjoyed on its own, then by showcasing its unlimited creative possibilities through playing with it."
