Lunablocks Are Giant Legos That Make Furniture
June 5th, 2008
LunaBlocks are giant Lego-like blocks that you can use to make furniture!
LunaBlocks were designed by Thierry Nahon & Philippe Landecker, who say they are all about “the transformation and enlargement of bricks used in building games for children.” Which means that no actual Legos were harmed, or even referenced, in the making of these blocks.
I’ll freely admit that when I saw these, I was SO EXCITED because they are amazingly cool and I want them so very badly. I mean after all those years building homes, airports, spaceships, and fire stations for those ungrateful little minifig bastards, finally, FINALLY all of my well-honed bricklaying skills could actually be worth something tangible in the human world!
They come in different materials like glass (pretty!), polypropolene (smooshy!), metal (cold and heavy!), and rubber (squeaky!) You can buy them from Homology, a French website. Each block will set you back between €13 and €35, (US$20 – $60, more or less) depending on how many pegs you like on your blocks. I can’t decide which color to order so if you have any suggestions, feel free to shout ‘em out…
