The story of OO BLOCKS began with the question: how do we represent letters and words in the simplest way possible?
Shaped by Shadow and Light
An OO BLOCK is an alphabet block that you can touch as well as see, shaped by shadow and light.The alphabets are shaped by simple cuts and carve-outs precisely milled, leaving a smooth gentle texture on the blocks. The premium grade wood is carefully chosen to evoke the best color contrast under daylight.
Orient Occident Block
OO Blocks stand for Orient Occident block, literally meaning east-west block. They serve as a reminder of our past as they contemporize the traditional printing block.

It can be a tactile learning toy for children; it can be a decorative piece simulating shapes of houses at home ; it can be the perfect gift for your loved ones on the most special occasions. Your 26 pieces of OO BLOCKS will forever remain a timeless, elegant piece of art that will be loved by you and your children’s children.
A Multi-categorical Product
OO BLOCK crosses many categories as the scale, function and purpose of the OO BLOCK is to be defined by the user.
A Children’s toy
The OO BLOCK can serve as a children’s toy and educational piece. It is well known that children learn through play and our OO BLOCK enables this intersectional form of learning. As children play with the different letter blocks they may begin to recognize how different letters are created with the interplay of shadow and brightness. Furthermore, they can stack and organize the blocks in different ways, leading to an improvement in spatial awareness and learning.
A Gift for your Loved Ones
As a gift, the OO BLOCK can be bought individually by letter or as a set with all 26 blocks packaged together. Perhaps a special word or name would be bought when a user buys OO BLOCK for a loved one. Or perhaps all 26 would be bought as a set, for a gift to a child as a toy. Packaged in a box of 26, the OO BLOCK is packaged so all 26 cube shaped blocks sit nicely stacked within a cube box.
Decoration for your Home
As decoration, OO BLOCK embellishes any space. The beautiful interplay of light and shadow makes the OO BLOCK a piece of art, especially in spaces dappled by daylight. Watch as the OO BLOCK changes dimension throughout the day as different directions of light interact with them.
OO Block 的故事由一個問題開始:「如何以最簡單的方式表達字母和字詞？」
於是，我們構思了OO BLOCK。它是一個可觸摸得到、並由陰影與光線塑造而成的字母塊。 我們嚴選優質木材，並以簡單的切割和精確打磨而製成木塊，在陽光的照射下，可見其平滑的紋理外，亦可折射出最佳的色彩對比。
OO Block是 Orient Occident Block, 字面意思是東西木塊。它們將傳統印刷版現代化，迴響我們的歷史。
OO Block 能跨越多個類別，因爲規模，用途和功能由使用者定義。
