Architect's Cubes, des. John Bennett and Gustavo Bonevardi (2010)


By: MoMA

Designed by architects John Bennett and Gustavo Bonevardi in 2010, this compellingly tactile set of Architect's Cubes was designed to encourage creative exploration of forms and materials.

Each of the eight cubes in this collection is made of a different natural and composite material: maple wood, bakelite, cork, granite, EVA, silicone, acrylic, and aluminium. The Architect's Cubes can be combined to create a large cube or arranged individually as sculptural building blocks.

Co-founders of PROUN Space Studio, Bennet and Bonevardi have produced works featured in The Un-Private House and Mies in Berlin, two exhibitions mounted by the Department of Architecture and Design in 1999 and 2001, respectively.
