From 1 to 3, and then 4, 5, 6… when you start counting you know where you begin, but not where you might end up! Abaco is a game around numbers, dedicated to very young children who are starting to discover the world one step after the other. The wires of an abacus serve as a metaphor for a line that connects infinite points, infinite experiences.
Abacus is a wire to walk along balancing back and forth, an elastic band to swing on, a rope to hold on to, a string to play on, a friend to count on.
