In the mood for… LEGO lamps

Came across the Lygolamp by Mango Studio and thought to have a look at the choices out there for LEGO fans.  You could DIY of course, but for lazy AFOLs (like me), it’s always good to have ready made options available.

  • Mango Studio’s Lygo Lamp –  supposed to hit stores this August and will available in 5 colours, including white, black, transparent, red transparent and purple transparent.  Strips appears to be a choice too.  The lamp is delivered flat packed and assembly is required to turn the 144 LYGO blocks into the completed lamp that measures 50 centimeters in diameter, with a 1.6m cord and that will take a standard E27 bulb (max 60 watt). Read more from Lygolamp.


  • 25togo’s LED illuminated acrylic brick – looks just like a giant sized LEGO brick on your study desk or bedside table, and doubles up as a pen holder via the removable top piece.  Available via 25togo’s online shop, for NT1600 (approximately USD54 USD). 3 levels of brightness. Dimensions: L 15cm W 10cm D 6cm x 2 piece (top and bottom)


  • Luxit’s Top Four and Ten range of lights – Less brick-like but obviously LEGO inspired.  The LED lights designed by Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Roat Nodari are available in all sorts of wall/floor/ceiling/table sizes, colors and configuration.


  • John Harrington‘s LEGO chandelier – Ok, so this one isn’t really available for sale, but I couldn’t resist a chandelier… The one room hotel, The Harrington is located in a Victorian-era building in Brighton. The LEGO chandelier is supposed to suit the setting, yet give the “youth and vigor” of a contemporary clientele.


As for me, I’m a lazy AFOL, so it’s just this Darth Vader LED desk lamp at home…

Rietveld Lego buffet

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.

SpecificationsYear: 2010
Material: LEGO® bricks
Product Size: 198 x 45 x 104 cm
Edition: 5

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.

More Goodies from Ace & Ryan

Wow, the guys from FBTB dun seem to be sleeping… everytime I check back there are more nicely sorted (and well taken) pictures on the FBTB Flickr Photostream (by sets).  Thanks guys!! 😀

Like this Lightning McQueen made of 325,000 bricks:

Or all these new licensed products, some which look really good! (Ok, I’ve only copied those I find interesting but still quite a lot):

I’ll leave you to browse thru the rest.  Too many details to mention ranging from the glass bottle & globe in the POTC sets to pics of the new Cars range to how the UFO abduction function works, to details of Kingdom’s Mill Village Raid (goats, the windmill mechanism, chickens, etc)…

LEGO table anyone?

Spotted at TRU Suntec, these LEGO Imaginarium Tables @ S$229.90, down from S$299.90. Selling for USD150 in the USA (& USD120 when discounted) but since you won’t be able to ship one back to SG (heavy!), this may be as good as it gets. Let me know if u do get one k? 😉

Giant (stackable!) Lego Boxes

I love these boxes. And the head. Must.get.many…

No idea when and where they would be available in Singapore though, anyone can help?  Lucky UK AFOLs, they will be available from Store this August…

According to homeshoppingspy, a large box will be £23, the smaller one will be £14 and the head will be £17.  And they are stackable/buildable… so if you get enough, you could actually build a small house/room out of them… or even the classic yellow castle! 😀

A quick search of amazon uk also shows them to be available: Link

The amazon site also has these goodies available: – heads in large and small size, boy and girl design, and dustbins in various colors with Lego head on the cover.

Lego books at Kinokuniya

I got the book “James May’s Lego House” from Kinokuniya… I just had to see how the house was built. 

Tbh, after reading I thought the design wasn’t that great… I really don’t like the stripes of colour running all outside the house.  As for the interiors, some were good (a real flushable toilet made of Lego!) while others were fairly disappointing… (chairs with studs on the seat? Even if they can’t use SNOT, I’m sure they could get some flat tiles… imagine the pain of sitting on a studded chair! )

Also spotted, one (1) last book of the Lego Collector.  I might have swiped it if not for the fact that I already have two. 😀
