Ikea and LEGO have partnered to create a unique storage solution – BYGGLEK. The new storage collection aims to encourage play and bring a sense of more fun into storage around the home and consists of a series of storage boxes with LEGO studs and a special LEGO brick set.
Andreas Fredriksson, Designer at Ikea of Sweden said: “At Ikea, we always believe in the power of play. Play lets us explore, experiment, dream, and discover. Where adults often see mess, children see a stimulating creative environment, and BYGGLEK will help bridge the gap between these two views to ensure more creative play in homes around the world.”
The BYGGLEK storage boxes feature LEGO studs on the top and the front, and it allows kids to integrate the storage boxes as part of their LEGO building play experience. The range consists of four different products- one set of three small boxes, two sets of bigger boxes, and one set of LEGO bricks for kids and adults alike, to embark on the playful experience. These boxes can be used with any existing and future LEGO elements, as the studs used on the lid and front are a part of the LEGO system in play.
Rasmus Buch Løgstrup, Designer at the LEGO Group, affirmed that: “BYGGLEK is more than boxes. It is storage and plays intertwined. BYGGLEK provides families with a product range that helps create space for more play in their every day – fuelling creativity, making it possible to have more fun together.”
Fredriksson added that: “the BYGGLEK collection match perfectly with other Ikea products, making it possible to have your children’s creativity becoming a nice and unique piece of decoration at home.”
