On the Lego website, to present the new Lego Dots tiles, they explain how the products help children to gain confidence about their manual and artistic abilities, learning to express their creativity. These gifts, however, are also a matter of DNA, as in the case of the French artist Camille Walala, residing in London, known for her works around the world that have echoes of the projects of the Memphis group (founded by Ettore Sottsass), featuring the use of lively colors and geometric forms.
Her latest creation, at Coal Drops Yard (the shopping center designed by Thomas Heatherwick), at the King’s Cross station in London, is HOUSE OF DOTS, an interactive house composed of five rooms, spread across eight freight containers (living, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and disco), with a slide outside, all created by using 2 million LEGO® pieces to clad everything, from walls to floors to carpets.
LEGO® pieces to clad everything, from walls to floors to carpets. LEGO DOTS, through 2D tiles, offer kids a creative canvas of free expression. The system is based on multiple forms and colored tiles, with objects that can be worn and decorations for spaces. Over 30 tiles have been introduced.
