LunaBlocks: Making furniture out of giant Lego bricks

Lego as furniture? Dude, you'd need, like, a million bricks for that… unless the bricks were gigantic, of course. That's the whole idea behind LunaBlocks — created by Thierry Nahon and Philippe Landecker of Lunatic Construction, the biggie bricks come in multiple colors and materials that are easily stacked together. Add a pane of glass or a pillow, and you've got fully functional furniture that looks straight out of Legoland!

LunaBlocks come in a number of types: your basic LunaBlock; LunaGlass, which are opaque and transparent blocks; LunaSoft, blocks made of durable polypropylene meant for kids; LunaLight, pillow-like material that's used to create comfortable seating; and LunaMetal, blocks cast in steel.

You can buy the bricks online from Homology. The prices don't seem so bad — ranging from $20 to $55 — until you realize that's per brick. Still worth it, though.

Browse the image gallery at and imagine your house decked out in LunaBlocks. You know you want to.
