Today I wanted to share with you an interesting LEGO-related project that just launched on Kickstarter, featuring LEGO-themed building tables that also double as storage units, as well as a couple of display solutions for LEGO sets and minifigures. I have been in touch with Travis, the creator of the project, and thought that his ideas looked well thought out, and solidly designed. You can read more about the project and the campaign below. 🙂
Brick Innovations began with Travis always getting stuck looking for those hard-to-find LEGO bricks when building with his three children. After staring at bricks long enough for his eyes to go fuzzy, he started designing products to make his LEGO brick searches easier. The rest kind of just snowballed from there. A mutual friend introduced Travis and Phil (Phillip Miller Furniture), as they both share an affinity for designing brick-themed products. And since Kickstarter is all about collaboration, they joined forces to bring their unique products to other LEGO fans.
Brick Innovations introduces their entire product-line in the Kickstarter campaign, including two building tables with built-in storage-drawers, a display-cabinet for LEGO sets and custom creations, display-shelves for minifigures and smaller models, as well as colorful LEGO knobs that can be attached to other furniture pieces.
The Brick Boss Table brings function to the forefront by combining all the advantages of a LEGO build table, brick storage solution, and brick sorting into a single piece of furniture. The Brick Boss Table is unlike other bin-based brick storage options in that there is no need to dig or dump out all the bricks to find the ones that you need. The Brick Boss Table is equipped with four extra-large drawers that were designed to be shallow, allowing all the bricks to be seen at once. It’s as if you dumped all your LEGO bricks out onto a giant bedsheet to make pieces easier to find, but without all the mess. The table is 37 1/8 inches wide, 18 inches deep, 24 inches tall, and comes with 4 extra-large drawers to comfortably fit 20,000+ LEGO bricks. Each removable drawer is equipped with bright colored LEGO compatible drawer knobs, and can be divided further with removable drawer dividers (8 dividers are included to create up to 12 separate compartments). The top provides 4 1/2 square feet of building space.
There is also The Brick Boss Table Executive Edition, with extensions on both sides of the same storage unit, to provide almost twice the building-space as the original table. It is 69 1/8 inches wide, 18 inches deep, and 24 inches tall, and is better equipped to work with chairs. Please note that chairs are not included with the table, however some Ikea chairs were added for the picture to show compatibility.
The Brick Showcase Cabinet allows you to display all your awesome LEGO creations and keep your hard work out of the reach of destructive younger siblings and safe from other pilfering fingers. The cabinet is 48 inches tall, 24 inches wide, 18 inches deep, and comes with 4 slide-out drawers to provide easy access to your LEGO creations.
The Minifigure Shelf by Philip Miller Furniture allows you to display your minifigures or small LEGO creations on a wall. Each shelf is a simple and elegant wooden bar with a strip of genuine LEGO plates embedded to provide attachment points. The shelves are wide enough to fit 16 minifigures (which is important if you are collecting the LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series). Each shelf is 18 inches long, 2 inches wide, 2 inches tall, and comes with all hardware included for hanging on a wall.
The last product featured in the campaign are the Brick Knobs, which can transform any chest-of-drawers, closet, bathroom or kitchen drawer, LEGO/train table, or any of your craft projects, and make them more LEGO themed. Brick Knobs are 1 inch diameter and 1 1/4 inches tall. They are injection-moulded over a brass insert to increase installed strength. Below is a video with more details.
If you like any of these LEGO tables and display solutions, and would like to support the project, you can choose from a variety pledge-levels and backer-rewards. If the fundraiser is successful, the first products should be available by the end of the year. For more details check the campaign page here: BRICK BOSS TABLE KICKSTARTER PROJECT
