Block style



Using a soft, elastic fabric known as Fine Revo, Torafu Architects took those characteristics to create a contrary product: soft cushions that look like the concrete block walls found in typical Japanese neighbourhoods. Working from traditional motif designs, the resulting cushions enable sofas, partitions and seat cushions to be easily converted into whatever style your room requires.



Imagine what it would be like to take a bath with a shark, to have a cactus that doesn’t sting or to reach into an alligator’s mouth. Pixel by pixel, you can carefully re-create artworks from pre-cut pieces of square vinyl.
US$18–US$40, depending on model.


Weplay Octagon Creative Blocks

hese unique octagonal building blocks – almost 40cm wide – are available in four vivid colours: red, yellow, blue, and green. They can be used to fence sandboxes or ball pools or simply as building blocks. The simple assembly encourages creativity and imagination of all ages.
US$345 for 12 pieces.


Cojines Floor Pillows

Cojines by Nanimarquina are playful building-block pillows on a grand scale. Great for lounging, creating a flexible play area, or fort-building. Made from a viscose (a natural polymer) exterior with a polyurethane foam cushion and simple magnetic clasps, these cushions can be arranged in myriad ways to fit whatever your style or surroundings.



These wood blocks with magnets in them enable the creation not merely of toys for children, but also the possibility of design for adults. The magnetisation allows the building of some unique structures in Tegu’s Explorer sets, or defined shapes and models in specific product offerings.
US$30–US$155, depending on set.
