Bloxes

Today, we are proud to announce the launch of Bloxes.

Bloxes are essentially 3D cardboard Legos that ship flat, and fold up in modular building blocks that are strong enough to stand on. While they aren’t tech per se, we use them for building tables, walls, cubicles, and desks at the Humanized office. Google and Mint.com have already ordered some, and Mozilla has expressed interest in using them in their offices too. This may well be the new thing in terms of agile office-space deployment. Don’t like where a wall is? Just move it! Don’t like the way it looks? Just rebuild it! They are cheaper than cubicles, and much more fun.

They are also eco-buzzword-friendly (meaning that they are made from recycled cardboard and are recyclable).

So head over to Bloxes and order yourself some re-factorable furniture and walls. Then come back here and tell us all about it.

We are now a Python and cardboard shop.

You’ve done it again, great idea. I was thiniking about something similar after reading this short story in TR magazine.
“designed for disassembly”


Jef’s ideas live on! I love that you’re selling these. Great favicon on the bloxes site, by the way.

Congratulations! Great, idea.

Any plans for international shipment?


I saw these at sxsw and was wondering what they were. I thought pizza had made the leap from a single plane to the 3d world.



Natasha Lloyd

I also saw them at SXSW, but had no idea what they were. Great idea!

really awesome idea and great implementation, too!

this just reminded me Cedric Price’s Generator mentioned in a talk, Strategic Boredom by Molly Wright Steenson at interaction08.

We’ve been buying up walls of bloxes at iofy corporation (iofy.com). We’ve enjoyed putting them together and find them far more interesting and inspiring than cubicles.

Here a pic of an early stage cube:

You also know how to make individuals rally behind it, certainly from the responses.

Hrmm that was weird, my comment feed. However, I would say it is good to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that gave me the answer. Thank you.

Hello I found your blog by mistake when i was searching AOL for this subject, I must tell you that your blog is really helpful I also love the design, which is great that!


With the whole thing that seems to be developing within subjects, all scenes are generally quite refreshing. Even so, I apologize, but I can not subscribe to the whole plan, all be it exhilarating nonetheless. Looks like all your opinions are generally not completely justified and in reality you are generally yourself not really fully convinced of the argument. In any case, I do not appreciate a look.

The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and skin the site in such a way that with very little effort never see why the site tick all without limiting the content and efficiency.
