Tumi Ishi by A4

I’ve mentioned my little cairn before. The concept is totally similar, but they apparently are intended for a different reason. I’m not entirely sure the specifics of this, but I am obsessed with these “Tumi Ishi” wooden blocks. They are designed to be a toy, based on an old Japanese tradition of stacking stones. They are designed by Japanese firm A4. Obviously this is something adults can enjoy and appreciate as well. The faceted side of the woodblocks is so beautiful and simple and modern! It’s mini modern sculpture! Anyone know how I can get my hands on these?! I can’t tell if they are selling them since it’s all in japanese. Hm… Maybe I can find someone that could make me some?? Ideas? (via Designspotter, images via A4)
