Fort Standard: Balancing Blocks

Work / Product Design

Balancing Blocks –more beautiful than Lego and Jenga combined?

What’s more geometrically exciting than Jenga with the colour palette of Lego (don’t worry this isn’t the start of some appalling joke)?The answer is Balancing Blocks, a serious piece of boredom-evading hardware from product designers Fort Standard. Balancing Blocks encourages players to construct complex structures from 10 hardwood pieces in an assortment of unusual shapes. You may not be able to create vast plastic utopias as with the aforementioned scandinavian cubes but we’ll be damned if the constructions shown here don’t look equally beautiful in their tidy little arrangements.

Fort Standard do much more than just colourful tabletop games, in fact their mainstay is beautifully engineered wooden furniture. So if you’re on the hunt for some stunning oak furnishings on which to arrange your colourful blocks, you may have just found the men for both jobs.
