textile softblock

flexible building blocks, each textile softblock can be stretched to 15′ (4.5m) long, connected magnetically, and stacked to create a tall, richly textured space partition or backdrop. Available in modular sizes softblocks belong to the larger collection of molo paper furniture and can be used to shape entire environments or to form long, winding partitions and product displays.
