Droog is selling a limited edition LEGO buffet furniture… thought it’s interesting, tho not something I would be interested in getting.
Description: A playfully charming yet serious piece of adult furniture, Buffet is a re-interpretation of Rietveld’s 20th century Buffet made of approximately 26,000 Lego bricks. In line with Reitveld’s manifest for a do-it-yourself method of building furniture from standardized parts, the Minale-Maeda interpretation by its own qualities becomes autonomous and divorced from its parents; the iconic Rietveld and the iconic Lego brick. Using toys to make real furniture for grown-ups, an industrial process of standardization starts to feel more human.
Material: LEGO® bricks
Product Size: 198 x 45 x 104 cm
Right now I would be more interested in having my own study table with a layer of LEGO underneath… perhaps personalised with names… like this one, but instead half the width and lined up against the wall… what do you think? Do-able right?
If you are interested you can read more from my earlier post about this LEGO table.
