“Color reflection through the combination of colors and materials. The play of surface to surface reflections with the purpose of experimentation on how these three criteria (reflection/ shape/ color) effect each other and how they influence their surroundings, any available light is captured and reflected back to produce the desired light ambiance.”

Children of a young age play with small wooden blocks to learn the alphabet. Letters lead to words that lead into sentences and so on. Our oversized kraft boxes reintroduce the alphabet not as 26 distinct letters, but as the result of combining geometric parts. The 4-inch cubes may be viewed and stacked from any direction, creating unexpected shapes and letterforms. The boxes are made from recycled cardboard, delivered flat (assembling is part of the fun). This is a prototype. It is available for exhibit, licensing, etc.
