On an episode of the TV show 'Home by Novogratz' they featured a real, working lamp that was made out of LEGO bricks. More specifically, the creator surrounded an existing lamp with the bricks, glueing them as he went.

Does anyone know if there are any plans for such items available - lamps, or other furniture items?

And are there any sites etc. out there that could provide guidance?

Any help appreciated. I've used LEGO since I was knee-high, but this is a new project for me.

    Do you refer to the lamp including a light emitter (LEGO light brick) or just the stand? For furniture you may better ask another question.

  • I would be careful not to use a bulb that gets very hot. I accidentally warped some of my bricks doing that.

The lamp is made by LEGO artist Sean Kenney. Along with some other items, he sells the lamps on his website. They are available in a range of styles and colours, but they are quite expensive.

Since he is selling the lamps I think it is unlikely the plans are available, although the pictures on his website are quite high resolution so you may be able to replicate the design. (I have no idea about the legality of such though).

  • Seems when the lamp falls down of your desk, you can't "repair" it manually but need to send it to the customer service ;-)

Here you go. These are the things needed to build a Lego lamp. How to build it? Well......use your imagination......

    I really, really would not recommend building something which involves cutting LEGO as the first step...
