design studio nimuno has come up with a LEGO compatible tape that turns everyday surfaces into toy brick building bases. nimuno ‘loops’ are flexible and cuttable, and feature re-useable adhesive backing, creating plenty of potential for play and passing time. users can build around wall corners, on curved surfaces, kitchen counters, or even onto the ends of other LEGO objects — the possibilities are endless.

after more than a year of research and development, cape town-based designers anine kirsten and max basler came up with a prototype for the ‘nimuno loops’. ‘we at nimuno have spent our lives building and creating using LEGO,’ they say. ‘as professional designers, we see the creative potential it offers people young and old.’

instantly transforming virtually any surface into a base for LEGO components, ‘nimuno loops’ can be adapted for play and practical use. its layer of adhesive can stick to objects, walls, windows, counters and corners, wrapping almost any surface in and around the home. since seeking funding on indiegogo, the product has (so far) reached 6668% of its original $8,000 goal with almost 15,000 backers — check them out!
