In collaboration with Danish homeware design company Room Copenhagen, LEGO has launched a new wooden range of home furniture. The partnership has resulted in an iconic sustainable FSC-certified red oak wood furniture range comprising picture frames, wall hangers, book racks and desk drawers.
Before adapting plastic, the Danish toymaker had originally carved its designs from wood until 1960. Other than the launch of the wooden Minifigure in 2018, this homeware line is the first time the brand has worked with natural material in over 60 years.
Room Copenhagen has been licensing and bringing to market new LEGO products since 2010. Although the range eliminates LEGO’s signature bright colours, the homeware line promises to suit a range of spaces and aesthetics. With a neutral colour palette, where each item is available in a soaped oak and dark stained oak finish, the fun of building still remains. Each piece has been designed to scale according to the original LEGO brick dimensions. For instance, the desk drawers and the picture frames can be stacked on top of one another.
The desk drawers come in two sizes and are designed 1:1000, the same as the book rack. The picture frame is designed 1:600 and the wall hanger is set at 1:600, 1:1000 and 1:1200.
