Building Block's story starts with sisters Nancy and Kimberly Wu in Los Angeles, California. After both having successful careers in the industrial design industry, they felt they were seasoned enough to go out and create something on their own. This experience along with the duo's dedication to simplicity is apparent in the striking minimalism of the Building Block collections. The bags are free of all unnecessary detail and provides a nod to mid century design with function and precise juxtaposition. Using unconventional materials such as wood and acrylics, the line creates bags that could be easily mistaken for sculptural pieces. Understated and easy to accessorize, Building Block's collections posses a refinement that is unaffected by prevailing fashion trends.
