“Arqam” is an educational toy that uses simple shapes to depict Eastern Arabic numerals. This wooden set is an engaging teaching tool for anyone who would like to become familiarized with the language.
Each number is divided into two elegant pieces, highlighting the modularity of the numerals while making them easier to learn.
This unique piece was produced in Tripoli for the Play by Minjara Collection, a range of wooden playful objects infused with a sense of Lebanese culture. Play by Minjara emerged from a partnership between Minjara and the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) Design Department at the University of Balamand.
