World-renowned architecture firm Kengo Kuma & Associates has designed a range of wooden building blocks

The simple triangle-shaped blocks were created in collaboration with forest conservation organisation more trees and are called TSUMIKI, meaning “wooden blocks” in Japanese. The pieces can be combined in a variety of formations, so there is no limit to your creativity. Available in sets of 7, 13 or 22 pieces, the blocks are easy to use for both children and adults.

Every piece of TSUMIKI is crafted from Japanese cedar and is manufactured using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)-certified wood, and consists of a v-shaped form that allows for stackability. The unique shape also allows the pieces to stand up unaided, either on their end or laid on their side.

Blocks of a larger scale were created especially for the Tokyo Midtown DESIGN TOUCH exhibition where a pavilion was created by the firm out of TSUMIKI.
