Conceived by Brooklyn-based design studio Fort Standard, this set of ten faceted stone-size shapes are a puzzle, game and building block set all in one. Compete or partner up with Balancing Blocks to build structures while focusing on height, gravity, balance and style. Ten hardwood game pieces finished in non-toxic white or primary colors offer a vintage look through fun contemporary forms. Packaged in a cotton drawstring bag.
Materials: Various hard wood with non-toxic paint finish.
Fort Standard is a young contemporary design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is a fusion of craft-based backgrounds and a progressive design approach which pairs timeless materials with modern day process. Often using traditional methods of production in new ways, the designers have developed a unique visual language rooted in simplicity and functionality. Their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a "warm-contemporary" aesthetic. Having launched their own line of products and furniture designed and often built in-house, the duo is also engaged in a more formal industrial design practice consulting for mass production.
