Rietveld Lego buffet by Minale-Maeda

A playfully charming yet serious piece of adult furniture, Buffet is a re-interpretation of Rietveld’s 20th century Buffet made of approximately 26,000 Lego bricks. In line with Reitveld’s manifest for a do-it-yourself method of building furniture from standardized parts,

the Minale-Maeda interpretation by its own qualities becomes autonomous and divorced from its parents; the iconic Rietveld and the iconic Lego brick. Using toys to make real furniture for grown-ups, an industrial process of standardization starts to feel more human.
