rietveld lego buffet


I've considered large scale lego furniture before, but never had enough bricks. then i saw this:

dutch based design duo minale-maeda (kuniko maeda and mario minale) playfully reprise gerrit rietveld's grace to reconsider his de stijl masterwork, 'buffet' for dutch design company droog. the 'rietveld LEGO buffet' uses over 25, 000 pieces of LEGO, updating the de stijl's call for simplified materials through the use of the iconic toy building blocks known to us as children, creating a re-iteration of one of modern design's most relevant historical suggestions.the buffet comes in a numbered edition of 5.

the buffet is a continuation of mario minale's 2004 rendition of rietveld's red blue chair, also done in LEGO.
