Was this designer feeling nostalgic about their childhood? Inspired by Ed Sheeran’s Lego House? Not a parent of small children who knows the definition of torture is stepping on the deadly blocks?
There’s no such pain with Everblocks, a series of Lego-influenced home décor pieces that will let you incorporate some youthful whimsy into your home.
These are not toys, although you can certainly have fun creating designs that suit your home. From tables, colourful partitions, artworks or even a Lego Bar, the choice is up to you.
Arnon Rosan, the inventor of the building system doesn’t feel the joy of making Lego creations needs to end when we grow up, “You get older, and you kinda wish you had a life-size version,” he said.
They come in 14 colors and three sizes known as full, half and quarter, varying in weight. Although everyone feels they remember how to build structures Rosan says the reality has been more complicated when adding the increased scale into the mix,
“People start to worry about stability,” he says. It’s no big deal if your 3-inch wall topples, but it is a problem if your 15-foot wall does. The key is to take lessons from Lego, and stack the blocks like bricks, staggering them so a brick covers the seam of the two below it. Each block also has at least one channel that allows power cables, reinforcing wooden dowels, or LED strips to snake through as a means of illuminating or stabilizing larger structures.”
The company is creating a library of instructions guiding people through some designs.
So what’s the best part of life-size Lego blocks? If you decide you don’t like or are sick of your design, you can simply deconstruct your creation and assemble a new one.
