Clickazoo is a collection of foldable leather animals developed for Hermes. The animals laying flat in their packaging become alive when manipulated by their users.

Just wonderful!
I'm not sure where I saw this object first, but I was deeply impressed! The name of the brand “[ 10¹² ] TERRA” was inspired by the number of cells produced per day (10¹²) and glass cases called terrarium, made for collecting and showcasing plants. They started the brand to create products that mirror the constant changes of life, full of new discovery.
