TSUMIKI are wooden building bricks that can be stacked and become towers, castles, houses, animals, viaducts, fences, bridges, mountains, railways, pyramids – only the imagination sets the limit. Japanese star architect Kengo Kuma has designed wooden bricks together with architect Shuhei Kamiya and the producer More Trees. Kengo Kuma is the architect of the new H.C. Andersen Fairytale-house in Odense, but is now also available at Kløvermarksvej 70, in the form of the fine TSUMIKI.
Shuhei Kamiya is currently researching and working in Denmark and has introduced us to the TSUMIKIs, and in that way also an example of a cultural exchange between Denmark and Japan, celebrated this year. The TSUMIKIs unite beautiful woodwork and architecture in an easy-to-understand way and in a very tangible form, which children in Denmark are now introduced to for the first time.
Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 11th, we are hosting a series of workshops with Mariko and Kinuyo from Japanese company Tonton, who are doing workshops with children and adults all over the world. You can sign up for the ticket link here.
