MoMA Exclusive: This playfully constructed cube is formed from a variety of rubber wood cubes, triangular prisms, half-cylinders, column and half-circle blocks. Building the blocks together into a cube—or taking it apart and building new objects—helps kids learn to mentally manipulate objects and develop spatial creativity. The pieces can be assembled together into a variety of forms and structures, and the set is intended to encourage free play and exploration. When all the pieces are stacked together in a cube, the Mini Wooden Blocks measures 5.25” on each side. Ages 3+.

“My father was very hands-on in his creative process and he began encouraging me to draw and make things when I was very young. I grew up playing with unfinished prototypes, broken toys and cardboard models in his office.”
“Dominoes is a classic game for both children and adults, so I wanted to break away from numeric dominoes and create something visually fun and universal. The set is not only meant to be a game of dominoes—the patterns can be used for composing and decorating.”
“New York City has been the city of my dreams since I was little, because I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps of studying and working here. Once you are in this city, you inevitably get inspired by its vibrant art and design scene—and its energy.”
Designer Panisa Khunprasert is from Bangkok, Thailand where she studied industrial design at Chulalongkorn University.

She later moved to New York City where she attended The School of Visual Arts. She graduated with an MFA in the school’s Products of Design program, where she collaborated with MoMA on designs, and continues to design products for our store today.
