Hossidesign: Invent a game? Here's how!

Petra Michelle Nérette: We are with the company Hossidesign. But who is this company and who is behind it? Heiko will now explain that to me. Heiko Jürgens: Hello, yes, of course! I founded the company Hossidesign in memory of my father. His name was Hossi, he was called Hossi. The products all have names that he said to me when I was little. I'm actually inspired by everyday life with our daughter. She gives me ideas, which I then develop for her and actually together with her. She then has to try out the prototypes, which is how we come up with the products.

Games arise from everyday life with the daughter

Heiko Jürgens: For example, the jumping box. She wanted to play hopscotch, but we didn't have any chalk. So I thought about whether it could be designed differently. The result was this hopscotch principle that you can simply spread out on any floor. One thing led to another.
