As a child, I spent countless hours playing with Lego bricks to construct robots, buildings and even automobiles. No I didn’t end up being an architect (much to the folks disappointment) but they did inculcate a sense of design in me (or so I would like to think). Looks like I am not the only one who loved her Legos as there have been many designers who have paid homage to their favorite building blocks. Hence we decided to compile our favorite Lego inspired designs, which range from the surreal to the sublime!
Lunablocks are Lego inspired blocks that can be played around mmm I mean customized to make functional furniture be it coffee tables, console tables or sitting arrangements.

Legomania goes Retro or so it seems with this bathroom space. Playa d’Eau by French brand Delphi looks something straight out of the eighties and takes design cues from legos and the Rubik cube.
