Over the years I've found that I enjoy creating minimalist objects with simple silhouettes in single colors; there's something I like about the way a sculpture becomes very graphical and almost 2D. A sculpture built with LEGO bricks in this way occupies a visual space somewhere between texture and form. After creating a desk lamp for a popular HGTV home-renovation television show, I decided to create a whole series of lamps in this style; contrasting the shapes of classic, vintage lamps with a the pop-bright lick of bold, clean color from the LEGO bricks. And while a lamp built with LEGO bricks could have easily been a zany rainbow-colored endeavor covered with fire trucks and dragons and spaceships, I instead wanted to create something sophisticated and elegant. It's for this reason I also chose to use a standard lamp shade (not built with LEGO bricks) so as to properly and softly diffuse the light. I have one in my home and many visitors don't even realize it's LEGO unless I point it out. 🙂 We've created hundreds of these lamps and continue to sell them to this day. (Fun fact: The lamps are named after streets in New York City. The lamp pictured here is the most obscure; it's named after the street that the project design lead lived on!)
