What This Company Did With Legos In Their Office Is Amazing. Can I Work There?
How cool would it be to work in an office made entirely out of Lego bricks? While we're not quite there yet, Hamburg, Germany-based creative studio NPIRE is a lot closer than most offices.They've got the full progression at the link, but here's the end product:
For the last year, employees at NPIRE slowly built a colorful wall of Legos to divide their kitchen space from the hallway. The finished product is the coolest piece of office furniture you've ever seen.
Wall 'o' Lego!
Naturally, that got me to thinking... With the wall sufficiently deep, it should be more than adequate as a partition (obviously not load-bearing...). The question, of course, becomes one of cost: How much did this cost just in materials? One of the pictures shows the starting materials; assuming that's all the bricks needed, there's 30 large buckets and about 50 of the smaller boxes. The large blue buckets are over $100 each; the boxes are $30 each. There's close to $5,000 in Legos there...
Yeah, I think at that price I'd stick with 2X4s and sheetrock...
That is all.
