"Smycke" shows 11 pieces of famous IKEA furniture and comes with a name sign for everyone plus a big IKEA logo sign.
It was hard to decide which models I wanted to build. Finally I made Strandmon, Malm bed and dresser, Makros, Lack, Poäng, Mammut, Fabrikör, Kallax, PS 1995 and Kipplan.
The box is inspired by the original Bygglek IKEA Lego Set. The target group are fans, who bought a lot of different products through their life phases. Maybe the fans had back at their childhood a whole room full of Kallax filled with toys. Now they switched to a minimalistic Malm bedroom. Some pieces of furniture attend us through different life phases. With this idea we can keep them in memory with small miniatures.
Why building Lego as an adult?
Building Lego is relaxing and helps to get creative. Bringing bricks together and rebuild original objects like IKEA furniture helps to understand how things are designed. Solving building problems or creating a special form is a good exercise to stimulate mindfulness and awareness. Lego isn't just a toy for children anymore. Even grand design agencies are using Lego to visualize their ideas.
