A Desk From 25,000 Lego Pieces

We have enough optical mice issues at work with glass desks (though, there are solutions to that) to let alone deal with a surface made completely of Legos, but hey, if DIY is your thing, then let the building begin!

Built by Mario Minale and Kuniko Maeda, the design is based off a sideboard sketch from Dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld made back in 1919. According to Minale, "Legos... [are] simple yet rely on complex and perfect molds and production systems." In other words, you can take something dead simple and turn it into something amazing. All you need is a little bit of elbow grease... and patience.

The design seems rather simple at first due to the similar colors used throughout, but is actually pretty complex and functional with drawers and doors for hiding tech.

There's a total of five of these babies on sale right now over here. Pricing has not been announced, but we're guessing it equates something to the amount of Legos they had to purchase, plus all the man hours of piecing it together.
