…this transparent LEGO chandelier [is] by Copenhagen-based industrial designer Tobias Tøstesen. The artist says, “I enjoy when design through a simple story, form, and material is sensuous, and because of those facts continues to surprise, admire, and therefore achieve a long life.”
With extreme precision and lots of planning, Tøstesen developed this functional design that was revealed at the 2013 Milan Design Week. Rather than the typical reds, blues, greens, and yellows of original LEGOs, the designer used 8,000 transparent plastic bricks to build the two-tier design in which light reflects through the curved shape in natural illumination. Tøstesen says that the final product is complex while “still keeping a dialogue with the real world of architecture and design, where bricks, despite their ubiquity, persist to challenge human creativity and continually forge new paths.”
The Wuppertal, Germany bridge was a blank canvas before MEGX began painting it last year to give it the illusion of stacked, colorful LEGO building blocks. This wasn’t some overnight graffiti bomb — authorities and sponsors helped MEGX create the giant mural over the course of four weeks. Totally legit. (source)
The world’s tallest lego tower with more than 50,000 bricks stands in front of Seoul’s Olympic Stadium. The lego tower measuring 31.9 meters took five days to build and broke the previous record set in France at 31.6 meters.
