JIX is a construction kit created by New York based visual artist and product designer Patrick Martinez. It is comprised of small modular elements that are specifically designed to allow standard drinking straws to be connected together, in order to create a wide variety of constructions. The JIX connectors come in flat grids which easily snap apart, intersect, and lock into place. With JIX you can build everything from ambitious room-sized structures to intricate table-top sculptures, all using JIX connectors and drinking straws.
