Life-Size Tan Buffet

Name of Model: LEGO Buffet
Created by: minale-maeda

Details: There is now another great entry in the category of life-size LEGO furniture. This buffet has four drawers and two doors. While there doesn't appear to be any particularly trickery building technique here (we all already knew you could use tiles to let part of a model slide on top of another part of the model, right?), the scope of the model is very impressive. Over 25,000 LEGO pieces were used to make this life-size - over 6 feet long. Based on a design by Dutch furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld, this model captures the look of the 1919 original as perfectly as can be done with LEGO parts. This buffet will be on display as part of droog's presentation at
design miami / basel 2010 from June 15th to june 19th, 2010.
