Let's get into the world of IXXI and discover the inspiration and ideas of the designers.

STUNNING SURPRISE

In the process of overcoming this difficult problem, ‘IXXI' came into being. And then the story started.

The three young designers have created simple X and I shaped pieces, and on the basis of that, a modular wall decoration product is made up of a series of square cards. This clever design allows everyone to bring his or her thoughts to the forefront and create a unique wall face.

三位年轻设计师创造出了简易而不简单的X形和I形连接件,并在此基础上演绎出一种模块化墙面装饰产品—正是由一系列方形卡片组成的。这种聪明的设计让每个人都得以将自己的所思所想发挥到淋漓尽致,为自己家中的那面墙进行创作。
