You might be forgiven for assuming that LEGOs are just child’s play. Forgiven, that is, until you see this stunning kitchen renovation. Parisian designers Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti created a kitchen using over 20,000 LEGO pieces in all shapes, sizes and colors, and they’ve named it the Munchausen LEGO Kitchen. It’s so amazing that you may never look at those humble little blocks in the same way again.
The duo used an IKEA island which they modified with tons of LEGO pieces in colors ranging across the spectrum. The entire project took just over week and even expanded into a few other LEGO accessories such as chair legs, and the adorable LEGO figure head cookie jar that sits in the kitchen.
The designers both work in fashion—Pillard works for JC de Castelbajac and Rosetti works for Hugo Boss France—and their design-savviness shows in the colorful, creative kitchen style. So, the next time you’re debating using bamboo or resin countertops for your kitchen renovation, you might also want to consider a big old pile of LEGOs.
