Rock Paper Scissors

A children’s game grows up in dramatic design accessories for fashionable home interiors and offices.
by EUGENIA UHL
No one knows exactly how the game “rock, paper, scissors”—also known as “roshambo”—began, but the classic children’s game we all grew up with is making a big comeback. From international tournaments to major auction house decisions, the game has new grown-up fans around the world, with different versions from Africa to Asia, Europe to Russia, and on across to America. We were inspired by this global game and gathered our own collection of noteworthy new accessories that can fashionably bring the power of the rock, paper, or scissors into your home or office. This is one design game you can’t lose.
