LEGO Furniture, Chilean Design, Francis Raab

We’re first on line when it comes to LEGO-esque furniture, so we were especially excited to stumble upon Muebloc. Not only does this modular furniture system feature blocks that can create different combinations–including bedside tables, dressers, wardrobes, and desks–each block is available in a variety of wood finishes. And although we love the brightly colored blocks from some of Mueblocs competitors, we’re happy to welcome a more neutral palette to the LEGO furniture family.

Everblock, giant LEGO, LEGO construction, modular building blocks

We’ve seen our fair share of adult LEGO projects, including architecturally themed sets of blocks, a full scale model of New York City, and even an entire bedroom made of 20,000 of the colorful modules. But none of these endeavors have quite the versatility of EverBlock, giant LEGOs that can be used to build tables, chairs, walls, and even full rooms and structures. As the company explains, “Anything you’ve constructed can be taken apart and re-assembled again, and the pieces can be re-used to build other objects, making EverBlock a unique green building method.”

For most creatives, waking up and building things with LEGOs every day sounds like a dream. For artist Sean Kenney, it’s a reality. Self-described as a “professional kid” who builds everything from lamps to portraits to entire rooms with the colorful bricks, Kenney needed a studio where he and his team could construct the fanciful works. He employed studioMET Architects to transform an old Brooklyn parking garage into his dream work space. With a project budget of less than $250,000, the firm designed a 4,000-square-foot artist studio with just as much personality as its owner’s sculptures. The bright white, open space allows the fun creations and bins of colorful bricks (4 tons of them to be exact!) to stand out while still maintaining a logical, functional layout.

LEGO, I-Beam Design, pixilated renovation, Barcelona Chair, colorful renovation, NYC loft renovation, Sean Kenney,

We all love and played with LEGO when we were kids, and this New York loft apartment is just another great example of how versatile the colorful Danish bricks are. The story begins when the son of Melissa Marks and Vicente Caride got too old not to have a door on his bedroom, so his parents decided to renovate their Chelsea loft in an innovative and playful way. I-Beam Design was called to do the job, and together with LEGO artist Sean Kenney they created an amazing pixelated new stair railing and wall using 20,000 LEGO bricks.

Kite Bricks, Smart Bricks, lego construction, concrete construction methods, Ronnie Zohar

Kite Bricks‘ “Smart Bricks” (also known as S-Bricks) are Lego-shaped, high-strength concrete bricks that can be used to construct the floors, walls, and ceilings of buildings quickly, inexpensively, and energy efficiently. Just like the childhood toy, the patent-pending product is available in different forms that snap together with rows of knobs on the top that slide into indentations on the bottom of another brick. And like a modular home, they can be delivered in a package with traditional doors and windows.
