LEGO Block Lamp Lets You Build Your Own Structures

by Paul Strauss

The guys who designed this LEGO block lamp managed to dig up some sort of industrial-strength blocks that won’t melt into a pile of smelly goo when subjected to the heat of a lightbulb.

What makes the Block Light really cool is the fact that you can rearrange the pieces into pretty much any configuration you’d like.

The kit comes with 219 small, 16 medium, and 4 large heat-resistant clear acrylic blocks which can hold up to the heat of a 40-watt lightbulb. Of course, if snapping all those blocks has you intimidated, you could always buy one of these giant LEGO block lamps instead.

Ready to build your own custom lamp? Head on over to RED5 and plunk down your £25 (appx. $45 USD) for the kit. Keep in mind that RED5 is located in the UK, which operates on 240-volt power, so you might need to swap out the plug and lightbulb for use in North America.

    This lamp is a rip-off, because everything must be copied.
    Kreaton lamp is the only modular, secure and with international patent.
    We should denounce these people.

  2. Manu says:

    Is really a joke.
    Cinese can not copy all made in Italy.
    the real product is modular and componible, is KREATON, made in Italy, safe and with an international patent.
    should rebel

    You guys are nerds, everything in art is a “rip off” if you want to put it like that. legos where already created and so was electric light and light bulbs….so suck it up and get over it. Artists are always inspired by other Artists….so suck it up. Only a critic would complain…because they only know how to criticize!

      I am afraid of a little nerd Tommy,
      lego has created a product (patent) related to the game “toys” NTT Design has patented the system modularity and composability linked to light. A point light with the ability to create a round shape (international patent).
      So, kid, learn more before you speak, do not talk about artists, there is talk of interest related to a product.
      How easy it is to talk without knowing.
