Art Kit Creates Sculptures Out Of Everyday Drinking Straws [Pics]

Environmentally friendly connectors help create novel structures.

Serena Chu

New York artist and product designer Patrick Martinez created a modern twist on traditional building kits like LEGO, that is both sustainable and educational. Jix is a construction kit that allows users to create unique structures out of regular drinking straws, using connectors are portable and lightweight, which makes for an affordable toy for all ages.

Specially designed Jix connectors are the modular elements that make connecting drinking straws to form bigger shapes and projects possible. They can be used for educational purposes, interior design, architecture, or art.

On the store website, there are tutorials on how to build various shapes with Jix, as well as a blog showcasing impressively built models. To start your first Jix project, you can purchase a construction kit here for $19.
