TSUMIKI are simple triangle-shaped wooden blocks named after Japanese building blocks tsumiki. The blocks have a variety of uses – from being used for play by children and adults, much like the Danish building blocks Lego, to being produced in larger sizes to build architectural structures like the TSUMIKI pavilion by Kengo Kuma in Tokyo Mid-Town Park (2014-2015). The countless ways in which the blocks can be stacked is limited only by the imagination.
TSUMIKI are designed by architect Kengo Kuma, based on a commission by More Trees, a forestry conservation organization led by renowned Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto. You can buy your own TSUMIKI kit in The Shop at Japan House London.
