Building Block

Building Block is a multi-medium design project based in Los Angeles, originally started in Tokyo by sisters Kimberly and Nancy Wu. The brand’s intention is simple: to rethink utilitarian objects through the playful balance of proportion, material quality, and construction techniques. As an exercise in minimalism, Building Block looks to clear away aesthetic assumptions and find continual inspiration in returning back to square one. 

Building Blockはロサンゼルスをベースに、東京で始まったKimberly Wu, Nancy Wu姉妹によるマルチなデザインプロジェクトです。ブランドコンセプトはシンプルで、プレイフルなバランス、素材のクオリティー、構造的なテクニックを通して実用的なオブジェを見直す。ミニマルなニュアンスの中で、曖昧な美的概念を明瞭にし、ベーシックなところに戻りインスピレーションを探し続けようとしています。
