Build Your Own Block Light

By Luke Anderson

As a child, many of us spent countless hours as young construction workers. No, we weren’t hundreds of feet in the air balancing on steel girders, but merely snapping together plastic bricks. We created everything from castles to space ships. Now someone has given us the option of making our own lighting fixture in a similar fashion.

While using actual LEGOs would be very awesome, such a design would be doomed. Those tiny bricks just don’t stand up to heat well enough to surround a light bulb. These Block Light bricks are made from a more durable plastic that still allows for the same sort of customization. The $45 kit comes with 219 small, 16 medium and 4 large blocks for your building pleasure. The only downside is that it’s currently only wired for use in the UK.

    To address the heat issue wouldn't a CFL work just as well?

    Is really a joke.
    Cinese can not copy all made in Italy.
    the real product is modular and componible, is KREATON, made in Italy, safe and with an international patent.
    should rebel
