Fort Standard: Balancing Blocks
Areaware, USA.

Fort Standard, a design studio based in New York created Balancing Blocks, an homage to a timeless form of entertainment for all ages; the classic wooden stacking block toy. These sculptural blocks are reminiscent of Isamu Noguchi's iconic sculptures in stone. Stack them up, knock them down, create and break down cities and miniature worlds. The possibilities are limited only by your own imagination. A beautiful and very unique gift idea for creative kids of all ages; yes, that includes you!

Compete or partner up with Balancing Blocks to build structures while focusing on height, gravity defying balance and style. Ten hardwood game pieces finished in non-toxic white or primary colors offer a vintage look through fun contemporary forms. Balance these ten faceted stone-size shapes to create your own sculpture. Tumbled in a water-based paint, and packaged in a cotton drawstring bag.
