Danish toymaker LEGO has revealed a new set aimed at helping adults improve their mental wellbeing. Titled “Forma,” the set uses LEGO pieces to create the skeleton of a fish, which is then finished customizable skins. The idea behind the project comes from the view that combining organic forms and mechanical work could help reduce stress and anxiety.

As well as featuring so-called technic elements — which are used to give more complicated technical functions — the set also features a crankshaft and gear system that makes the fish move. The project has been launched by LEGO Ideas, the brand’s platform for open source innovation, and is currently crowdfunding via IndieGoGo.
