Incredible Kitchen Renovated with LEGOs

by , 02/08/11

Munchausen Lego Kitchen Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti

The Munchausen Lego Kitchen is based around an Ikea island that has been outifftted with more than 20,000 Lego pieces. Not quite and afternoon in the playroom, the entrie process took the designers more than a week to complete. The results were well worth the effort, which gave way to a vast eye-catching mosiac. Additional pieces have been incorporated by the designers including funky Lego chairs with bolder patterns than could be achieved with molded plastic or metal, complimentary kitchen accessories, and what looks to be a cute little Lego man head cookie jar.

So if you’re currently in the dilemma of trying to decide which countertop finish will give your home that much needed zing, maybe it’s time to stop off at the local toy store and pick up a box (or a hundred) of Legos and start outfitting your kitchen!

Additional designs for a line of T-shirts, cushions, wallpaper and accessories by Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti’s can be found at French label Commune de Paris

    Seems to me like one would have to collect used and unwanted Lego for this to be considered mildly eco-friendly.

    congratulations, you have officially proved me wrong. it is possible to have too many legos.

    At least you won’t have to worry about crumbs. Who could find them on this counter?

    Adaptive reuse…Anytime you use something that has already been made, it takes less energy/resources than manufacturing a new countertop out of something else.

    As far as actually having that many Legos already laying around? Another story entirely! :P

    Looks really cool, but how is this green?

    You could probably just put a lacquer or polyurethane over it so that its cracks won\’t absorb everything you spill on it.

    [...] the wonderful world of LEGOS – we’ve seen that they can build you just about anything including a city! Well, a team [...]

    This should be on all DIYers Christmas list!

    How do they clean it? Won’t liquids get into the spaces between the Legos?

    Can someone tell me if Lego is a ‘green’ material”? Apart from the fact that it does look great, how is it good environment-wise?

    Lego is singular AND plural – there is no “Legos”
