Does anyone know how what Kaufman renders as "It-world" (in "I and Thou") appears in the original German?

Probably Buber says "dingliche Welt (it-world)". The German term dinglich is the adjective to the noun Ding (thing).
But to be sure you must quote the precise passage from your English edition.
