As an architect, Damien Murtagh understood the value of a physical model to explore ideas and present designs to clients. However, traditional ‘cut and glue’ models are time consuming, impractical and expensive. The moment of insight came while he was developing a real modular building concept. He needed a modern system that was fast, reusable and cost-effective. To his amazement, nothing like this existed – so he decided to invent one from scratch! Designed and manufactured in Ireland, ARCKIT is a bright team of architects, toy specialists, designers, model enthusiasts and all-round creative people where they work tirelessly to share their enthusiasm and ideas. Their mission is to open the world of architecture to everyone and help children develop fundamental design skills and experience the feeling of spontaneous creativity through hands-on model building.
