Cubitz Kitz surfaces allow the customer to add to their experience using Cubitz Kitz to create custom pieces over and over again. With Cubitz Kitz surfaces you are able to add to your units with a number of options from acrylic shelving, slats, and metal shelving in gorgeous black satin
Surface slats and additional acrylic shelves are available as add-on accessories for CubitzKitz.
The Surface Slats easily snap into place, and require no fasteners. They are a satin finish and are made from glass-filled nylon.
The special Cubitz Acrylic Shelves have the appearance of glass, but are safer and require no fasteners or shelf clips. Shelves have 4 round notches in each corner that align with vertical tubes, for consistent spacing and to prevent them from moving.
History of Cubitz Kitz
The original Abstracta system is made from steel tubing and zinc connectors. This gives it the weight and structure necessary for commercial applications. However, the steel and zinc friction fit takes significant force to hammer flush and to disconnect. Once people assemble Abstracta, they tend to keep it together for awhile. This is where Cubitz Kitz comes in to the equation!
Cubitz Kitz are for DIYers, families, and anyone who loves to regularly rearrange their home. It utilizes 15″ anodized aluminum tubing instead of steel, and an entirely new type of connector that is glass-filled nylon instead of zinc. Cubitz Kitz are 75% lighter than the original Abstracta, and much easier to assemble and disassemble. This also makes it more accessible to children and people with limited physical strength. It is still extremely strong, but it’s a lot more fun to put together.
We recently sold small quantities of aluminum tubes and Cubitz connectors on our website. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and even led to some final modifications to the molding process. Therefore, we now feel comfortable packaging the connectors, tubes, shelves, assembly tools, instructions, and design kit together into one convenient kit that we call Cubitz Kitz.
Cubitz Kitz include everything you and your family need to plan, prototype, assemble, and disassemble your unique designs. Cubitz Kitz are made up of two parts: a Design Kit and a Build Kit. The Design Kit contains half-scale straws and connectors, isometric graph paper for exploring concepts, and an instruction booklet. The Build Kit includes 15″ black satin anodized aluminum tubes, assorted nylon connectors, acrylic shelving (safer than glass and requires no shelf clips), lightweight hammer, and disconnect tool.
