We love products that encourage kids to not just think creatively, but challenges little ones to question the world as it has been presented to them. The Nameless Paint Set, by Japanese design pair Ima Motek (Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki), examines color and creativity in a whole new way. Each tube is labeled with a combination of primary colored dots to indicate what was mixed to create the vibrant hue inside. The technique helps children to understand color and color theory on a more intuitive level. In the words of the designers, "By not assigning names to the colors we expand the definition of what a color can be, and the various shades they can create by mixing them.” The Nameless Paint Set is currently available on Spoon & Tamago.
