The smarin studio takes into consideration the objects and their surrounding environment as a means of expression, freedom and autonomy.
By adapting modular elements, being an active and creative user allows each individual to build themselves but also to share collective moments of play and encounters.
The Sign System is a  game of signs, writing and language for all ages: no limits and no rules.

Sign System, a game created by smarin, is a set of 82 wood elements in seven different shapes.
Two straight lines that are thick and slightly curved, one big and one small, a semi circle in the shape of a croissant, a circular plate, two curved pieces, and a dot.
These archetypal forms of a figurative and / or ornamental vocabulary, translated into small manipulable objects, allow a game without any limitations. It is about signs, writing, language, and non-verbal communication.

play with signs
All the letters of the alphabet can be produced from these seven forms. It is about learning, or playing with the hand writing (close to calligraphy) of all Latin languages.
Play alone or together in a tactile dialogue.
The a is made of the a semi circle in the shape of a croissant associated to the small line, the b is the big line in front of the semi circle, the c is the semi circle shape alone, etc.

play with the language
Have fun composing, creating and discovering different words, all by the handling the different shapes. Construct sentences, anagrammatic researches and even start a conversation.
Sign System, a typography in volume composed of autonomous signs, allows the user to form letters of a lowercase script, but also is an invitation to imagine a variation of forms beyond writing and language.

The elements of the Sign System are made out of untreated oak.
The elements of the game are easy to maintain and can be oiled for better protection. A soft sand down will revitalise each shape.
