This is the “Wurfel Turn 6×6” an amazing little wooden black and white cube toy that I picked up from the bauhaus archiv in Berlin.
The cube can be made into 3 other shapes, the one to the right is my favorite. The whole thing is held together with a length of elastic running though each wooden block, you can therefore twist and turn it to create the different shapes! This great little toy for both adults and children is by a company called Belidesign, they seem to have other great things on their website but it’s very difficult if not impossible to find stockists for their toys :(. But check out their site anyway… Belidesign.de.
Above is the Bauhaus Archive museum which is well worth a visit if your in Berlin, your not mean’t to take photographs in there and I got told off, but did manage to get this Bauhaus kitchen snapped up, pretty amazing design for the 1920’s or so.
