I’ve seen Legos used as design elements and details, but I’ve never seen it look so classy!
… [T]he renovation also brought him something straight out of a toy-store fantasy: a wall and staircase made completely of Legos. Working with Suzan Wines, co-founder of I-Beam Design, Marks dreamed up the concept based on both Archie’s love for the bricks and her own affection for geometric, abstract design and Lego-like colors, which carries through the rest of the apartment. To install the wall, they enlisted Sean Kenney, one of only five people in the country licensed by the Lego company to undertake projects as ambitious as, say, a four-foot, 13,000-piece replica of the Empire State Building. In the end, the building process took Kenney and his two assistants two weeks of fourteen-hour days to complete. The staircase, however, is still something of a work-in-progress, as Archie and his playdates are always adding their own structures to it.
Also, this is my new dream work/art space… all those drawers for prints and paper and supplies!!!
