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 [1] design that is both happy and useful. The use of LEGO [2] 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 [3] 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.
