One part origami, one part architecture, pure genius, the brand new Bloxes [2] system makes 2-dimensional pieces of interlocking cardboard come to life as expandable and continually adaptable structures. Because they’re so masterfully designed, Bloxes [2] create structures strong enough to stand on, all assembled without tools. So they’re not just for room separating anymore- build a bench, a table, a wall, or even a full room!


Each Bloxes [2]piece measures 9 1/2 inches when assembled, so a pack of 20 will create a 4×5 blox wall that measures close to 3×4 feet. They’re multi-faceted, so you can build in any direction by folding on the pre-scored lines, punch in the eyes at the center, flip a few flaps and stick a few triangle pegs and boom, you’ve got yourself some new furniture.

Bloxes
is a Chicago-run design company owned and run by Andrew Wilson and Aza Raskin. We love the environmentally friendly design possibilities afforded by this ingenious modular cardboard DIY building system.
