In my search for a topic for today’s blog post, I came across this great kitchen island created from one of my favorite childhood toys, Legos. I’ve built tiny Lego kitchens in my past, but can’t imagine the time put into creating this huge masterpiece. Designed by Munchausen, a duo formed by Parisian designers Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti, the island was built around a standard Ikea kitchen cabinet . The project took over a week to assemble the more than 20,000 individual Logo pieces. The design is smart, because it functions as a beautiful art piece for the room, but also serves the functionality of a standard island. My favorite part is the Lego head cookie jar on the counter, which is just the icing on the cake. I just hope they were able to get the Lego blocks on wholesale, because each 2×6 block is about $.26, making the island a whopping $5,200 dollars just in Legos. At that price, I don’t think I’ll be building any Lego furniture in the near future.
