NPIRE Uses 55,000 LEGOs To Create a Funky Pixelated Wall

Creative agency NPIRE recently outdid themselves by using 55,000 LEGOs to build a nifty room divider for their Hamburg office. The LEGO wall works to separate the kitchen and the hallway, hiding away dirty dishes and food leftovers, and looks insanely cool to boot. While we do wish that they'd reused all old LEGOs instead of buying new ones (they used some recycled ones and about 80 fresh packs), we're impressed that the playful pixelated wall can always be taken down and reused for a number of other purposes.
To make the striking dividing wall, staff at NPIRE brought their own childhood LEGO bricks and mixed them with about 80 new packs. Using assorted colored blocks they created a playful pixelated  design that is both happy and useful. The use of LEGO  bricks gives the team the freedom to rearrange or dismantle the wall leaving no trace in the rented space, as well as reuse them for another project.
The finished 3 foot wide, 2,80 high wall has an arched entrance to the kitchen and the company’s logo even acts as a window to peek through. The LEGO  wall ended up costing 2,500 Euros and was slowly built throughout one year. Creative yet functional, the wall is now a big feature in the office representing the company’s creative approach while hiding the kitchen’s chaos in an innovative way.
