Most of the time an idea for a new product comes to mind when you can’t find a suitable object that ticks all the boxes. The Dutchman Tom van der Bruggen encountered this exact problem while trying to design and create a model of a castle that he wanted to build in the South of France. In order to visualise the finished construction of the castle of his dreams, Tom van der Bruggen tried to construct it using regular wooden blocks. However, the size and shape of the wooden blocks didn’t allow him to create certain features such as lintels, roofs and floors. Unsatisfied with the possibilities of the wooden blocks, Tom set out to design and create his own. He invented wooden blocks in the shape of planks which he named Kapla - an abbreviation of “Kabouter Plankjes” which means “gnome planks” in Dutch.
