Building Block

you know that feeling you get when you’re super excited and nervous? say, before a date with someone you really like… or after you’ve just done something amazing like bunjee jumped or skinny dipped (with that someone you really like). heart palpitations might be the right word. WELL. i just got heart palpitations looking through the pieces at Building Block. god, it feels like i’m a teenager in love or something.

Building Block is a multi-medium design project based in Los Angeles, initiated in Tokyo by sisters Kimberly & Nancy Wu. Its focus moves freely in between luxury and industrial design where utilitarian materials and processes translate into minimalist forms. With the intent of magnifying essentials and editing out excess, Building Block finds continual inspiration in returning back to square one.

    Simple design and gorgeous leather just scream pure luxury to me!
    This kind of bag really sets a person out from the crowd. They tell anybody you meet that you have an appreciation for quality and detail. Well, I don’t know if I’m exaggerating, but I would DEFINITELY notice!
