Each module is 30 x 40 x 30 cm. The space in between the modules depends on the chosen configuration but will be either 18 or 28 cm wide.

Modules are made from solid plywood and finished with an organic linseed oil wax. The edges on both sides are finished with brushed aluminium banding, so there is no difference between front and back side.
