Trido is a set of magnetic building blocks, based on the geometry of Platonic solids: the shapes of tetrahedron and octahedron. Thanks to a patented ingenious magnet system, each side of every shape connects to one another aligning along the edges and with no repealing, which allows limitless construction possibilities. Trido has a harmoniously balanced palette in nuances and contrasts, while the expressive magnetic eyes can bring any structure to life. Trido is a distinctive inspirational tool.

Artur Tikhonenko

 Artur Tikhonenko was born in Belarus. He has an outstanding artistic talent since he was a child. He has a strong interest in painting and handmade. He was even more keen on street art, graffiti creation when he was a teenager. The unfettered creative experience provided him with the direction and accumulation for his professional art path. Artur entered the design faculty of Belarusian State University, systematically learned 3D modeling, sculpture and plaster casting, and did a lot of research on origami art, especially the Japanese origami flower ball kusudama. Artur was also abscessed with the modular origami system - building shapes with more or less modules. This also laid the foundation for him to create TRIDO.
