Slices of wood are layered in different combinations to make each animal in this toy menagerie by London design studio Yang:Ripol.
Flat Zoo comprises five pieces of thin ply, printed on both sides, that combine to make an elephant, monkey, penguin, owl, duck, whale and mouse.
The pieces are held together by a blue rubber band.
Yang:Ripol was founded last year by Yang and fellow Royal College of Art graduate Claudio Ripol.
We recently featured another set of wooden toys on Dezeen - an oil rig and tanker by Norwegian studio Permafrost.
