“We’re always spitballing new ideas for new materials. The other night I stepped on a piece at 3 am when going to the bathroom. The idea hit me as I was screaming really, really loud,” states David Justice, Managing Director of Ambience Lighting Australia.
Linear LEGO Luminaire by Ambience Lighting Australia is a sleek, minimal pendant light made exclusively out of repurposed LEGO bricks of different colors that can either be suspended from the ceiling or placed on the floor as a sculptural piece of art.
This project is the designers’ answer to the global material shortage.
For its conceptual design, the LEGO Linear Luminaire has recently been awarded a 2023 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
The bricks are carefully selected to exude vibrancy and a sense of playfulness.
Inside the luminaire’s frame, the designers have integrated a 7W opal diffused linear extrusion which exudes a soft LED glow.
The LEGO Luminaire is part of the design studio’s Symphony range, which specializes in creative linear, pendant, profile, “LED neon,” and strip lighting design.
“Sure, it will add a touch of creativity to your space but nothing says sophistication like LEGO. And it looks ace,” adds Head of Business, Lin Lam.
