We found these awesome cork building blocks [2] at the Milan Furniture Fair [3] this week and love their simple and beautiful look. Designed by Tetsuo Tonouchi [4] with safety and fun in mind, these lightweight building blocks [2] are made from natural cork [2] and non-toxic paints, and have super-soft edges. While they are a perfect eco-friendly toy [2] for children, we know we would have a great time building model cities [5], cars and other designs out of them too.
