  • TSUMIKI from More Trees
    Architect Kengo Kuma has designed simple triangle shaped called「TSUMIKI」,- a name that means ‘wooden blocks’ in japanese-They can be combined, according to your imagination. <br />There is no limit to the size of your creation!...

  • More Trees commissioned renowned architect Kengo Kuma to design TSUMIKI in order to promote productive uses of wood and to restore the relationship between forests and modern Japan, which has crumbled due to under use of domestic timbers.

    TSUMIKI is made of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)-certified cedar wood from Morotsuka, Miyazaki, Japan. With its elements of architecture, the triangularwooden building blocks can be combined and stacked to create many structures from small to large, limited only by the imagination.

    Kengo Kuma directs the design of the national stadium, which will be the main venue of the 2020 Olympics. He was a born builder of Tsumiki, and played with it on his own all the time in childhood. He says Tsumiki played a big role in his life, which af fected his career as an architect. Children would love to play with TSUMIKI, and it would develop their creative intelligence.
