A, B, se is an interactive wall puzzle and nine outdoor tables cast in terazzo concrete at the day care center Lilla Tensta in Stockholm, with engraved signs, brass signs and movable three-dimensional letters in different materials and from different cultures and eras. The letters can be lifted out from the wall, played around with and fit in again like a big puzzle, kids memorize the shapes with their whole body.
The design is inspired by classic temple walls with carved characters to inspire the kids to be curious about letters and languages. The design and function also refers to the many layers of history and languages today spoken in the area of Tensta. Commissioned by Stockholm konst 2017.
