This company specializes in creating simple geometric forms that visitors can assemble and combine into large integrated structures. Could apply to Maker, Engineering, Art, Physics content, among others, as well as special themed events (i.e. a riff on Cardboard City). They don’t seem to be exploiting the decoration aspect of such structures, which could add richness, originality and personalization to the work. They also produce a variety of small Maker style projects i.e. individual stools or lamps, that would seem to be nearly fool proof yet satisfying activities. Hat tip to Joseph for this one.
Here’s the company:

Little Planet Factory might be a good resources for a project looking for small-ish planet models:
Building on Mr. Toth’s find, it’s worth checking out some of the other elements in the ENESS portfolio. Investigating other firm’s work is a great way to inspire out own thinking about what’s possible. Here’s a few that caught my eye from the ENESS portfolio:
We’d probably execute this a little differently, but this idea has a lot of potential.
Love how they’ve blended physical motion with a visual / digital illustration of the motion. Poetic really. We should think of a way to us a similar technique in one of our moving elements.
This looks like an implementation of their OTS modules that Mr. Toth flagged. Not clear if it’s interactive, but certainly could be.
An interesting take on representing the scale of the solar system… Go big, and notably, “go visibile”
Nice implementation of the “scale of the solar system” concept. Seems ready made to be adapted to a spin browser and 50″ screen. Note the navigation controls at the top and the “light minute” speed feature at the bottom right. – Sean

Open source browser game that screams “Roto Interactive”! Wonderful simple art direction as well!
