This work desk is pretty special. In it, we invite you to smash or dismantle ordinary objects like a toy or a watch.

These are objects you probably see around you every day, but today they will be at your disposal. Prepared with safety gloves and various types of tools, you can use all your strength or all your delicacy to, for example, separate the various parts of an umbrella or a toy. Nothing in this living installation can remain intact! But do not think that we are here just to dismantle, because each piece will gain a new life with your help.

Suitable for kids from 6 years. 

March 12 between 12 and 18. March 13 – 15 between 16 and 19. 

Free entrance. No booking required. Show up at any time and register at the door. 

Entrance every 15 minutes. Last entrance at 19.

Duration: 45 – 90 minutes according to your own wish.

We also present Worktable for Adults
