(Le-)go for it!
How come there are so little Lego furniture…When there are so much Lego? I mean we all know how to use it, yet we somehow don´t really apply the Lego Logic to other usages…Approximately 400 billion pieces have been made since 1958…and as we speak, 36 000 more are being molted each minute…That means there are a lot of Lego simply waiting to be hacked out there!
The spendid Lego hack above was built by students and staff from DeMontford University, Leicester (UK) who volunteered to build full scale model tables to attract interest in their display during the Graduate Fashion Exhibition in June 2010 (photo:www.gravelandgold.com)
I think it shows a fab application of how Lego can be used in furniture making, however I´m thinking there might be a real table under that Lego cover in order to support the construction? (photo: www.bradtechonline.com)
As I love Lego myself, I feel I must go to Legoland soon (i´ve never been!). However, in the mean time, I find comfort in browsing Lego stores such as the one @ Rockefeller Center in NYC. Among other great things, the Rockefeller store features a Lego replica of the Rockefeller Plaza just outside the store…
Some great words of wisdom -spelled out in lego- also caught my eye – and my spirit:
Creativity and Imagination shall be the Stability of Thy Times
