As design often does, the project naturally evolved from its original intent. He started crafting the creatures simply with scissors and paper, creating small imaginary animals for fun. He saw the potential in the objects, and referenced <A href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Munari" target="Munari">Munari</a>'s idea of "sculture da viaggio" (portable design) as inspiration.
