As great admirers of the infinite possibilities of ordinary cardboard, we love British designer Torsten Sherwood‘s simplified single-component system that encourages instinctive building. Noook are colored, double-faced cardboard disks that slot together to create overlapping formations that can create unique structures.
Inspired by Legos, Noook offer’s infinite possible combinations. Designed for children, we see it as a wonderful material for adults.
We love the idea of a room screen fashioned with the disks to any size we like. (And that we could take apart and store flat-packed…)
We’re also thinking that Sherwood’s design might be something we could duplicate, using a template and laser cutter or utility knife.
We’d have to fool around with it…
We could imagine cutting the disks out of white Coroplast , a thin, sturdy, easily cutable corrugated plastic that is also wonderfully translucent.
