Itsphun

Makers: Ioana Browne, Michael Browne, Mircea Draghicescu, and Carmen Ionescu , Palo Alto, CA

You can make a variety of three-dimensional shapes using Itsphun’s interlocking triangles, squares, pentagons, and hexagons.

 
How Does It Work
Each foam shape has a slot that slides into the slot of another foam shape. Using Itsphun’s simple two-dimensional shapes, you can create Platonic solids, Archimedean solids, and Johnson solids.
