Creative Playware is a small independent design firm owned and run by me; Kristina Fassberg.
I specialize in creating unique, playful and functional products made out of LEGO® elements. My signature colorful and structural designs are sold in museum stores and design centers around the U.S., Canada and The Netherlands.
When I design, I'm often inspired by contemporary artists and architects such as Piet Mondrian, M. C. Escher, Daniel Buren, Gene Davis, Anne Truitt, Sean Scully and Kelly Ellsworth, Yves Klein, Dario Escobar, Gerrit Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Snøhetta just to mention a few.
I grew up in Sweden, and later educated in business and graphic art in Sweden and the U.S. I was inspired by my (then) 7 year old son to start Creative Playware. I now reside in the Bay Area, California.
Bay Area Drop In, Season 4 - Episode 1 featured the PIET No. 5 and the BAUHAUS No. 4 necklaces in a segment on personal style inspired by art, filmed at the Oakland Museum, California.
