This antique lamp is made entirely out of LEGO bricks… and it has actual working LEDs inside it

Rather simply dubbed the LED Lamp, this creation from LEGO builders Castor-Troy and Max Brich models itself on the Tiffany-style stained-glass lamps from the older days. Originally popularized by Louis Comfort Tiffany (a stained-glass artist from the late 19th century), the lamps are characterized by an Art Nouveau-inspired form and a tinted glass shade that would often fill a room with fragments of colored light. While it would seem impossible to us common folk to make such an intricate lamp out of LEGO bricks, Castor-Troy and Brich rather effortlessly put this beautiful piece together in under 800 pieces… an achievement in itself!

Designers: Castor-Troy and Max Brich

The lamp comes with a rather ornate central shaft, connecting the base to its pièce de résistance – the decorative lampshade. Underneath the shade sits two LEGO 2 Powered UP Light modules, giving the lamp a total of 4 LEDs. While it isn’t powerful to light up an entire room, the Tiffany Lamp was always a dim ambient light source with an artistic appeal, so its LEGO counterpart definitely ticks those boxes.

The lamp’s decorative design does absolute justice to its inspiration. It even comes with a faux chain-switch hanging from underneath the shade (which would be used to switch the lamp on or off). To power this lamp, however, there’s a manual switch on the base that needs to be flipped.

Moreover, Castor-Troy and Brich believe that the lamp can be expanded further by adding more ornate details to its design. In fact, to show how versatile even this current design is, they provided color options for the shade, choosing from an entire palette of translucent LEGO Bricks!
