Mat & More

Mat & More is a design company founded by Mathilde de Blois in 2012.

De Blois is passionate about user-centred design and children’s education which led her to launch Nino’s Mourning Toolbox; a tablet application on the story of Nino, a charming dinosaur whose sister dies. The app takes users through his bereavement process and includes activities related to the different stages of bereavement; it invites the users to address questions related to death in a friendly and playful way through singing, drawing, inventing, speaking, thinking and listening, in order to better understand and tame the concepts tackled.

Complimentary to the app, a set of figurines of Nino's family has been created along with Nino's Mourning storybook. The figurines enable the child to manipulate objects and give a consistency to the questions raised.
