tectus wood toyTectus Wood Toy

Tectus from the Swiss company Naef consists of a cube divided several times according to the 'golden ratio', the principle that the shorter part of a line segment has the same relationship to the longer part, as the longer to the whole. These blocks can be arranged numerous ways in accordance with this harmonious principle which has been used by architects and artists since the 15th century. See more objects and toys from Naef here.
