Designer Profile – Oisin Miliano
Oisin studied Industrial design at NCAD. As his final year project he designed ‘Playcrate’.
Playcrate is a stackable play mat that has a LEGO compatible surface. You don’t have to demolish your creations just cos play time is over; you can lift them up, fold playcrate into a storage unit and store them in playcrate. Oisin plans to market playcrate as a pack of 3. They sit cleverly on top of one another and store your LEGO and protect your unfinished masterpieces. It’s a simple but fabulous ides. When we displayed Playcrate in designist, the response was unbelievable. There is no doubt that Playcrate is a product you’ll see on the market soon.
