The lightweight system is made from expanded polypropylene, which Movisi claim is completely non-toxic. "Build is stylish, functional, 100% recyclable and actually safe enough to eat," says brand founder Natascha Stojanovic.

Triangular clips slot into the backs of each module to hold them together, making it easy to create various freestanding assemblies.
