Artist Melissa Marks and interface designer Vicente Caride brought on Suzan Wines of I-Beam Design to help renovate their Chelsea loft. One of the designs they collaborated on is an amazing stair railing and wall made from nearly 20,000 LEGO bricks.

…I-Beam designed the stairs, structure and Mondrian inspired openings based on LEGO® dimensions (measured by dots) while the Marks/Caride family worked with Sean Kenney, one of two licensed LEGO Artists based in New York City, to create a flow of receding or intensifying color up and down the stairs. The final design is composed of an evolving series of additions made by the people who live, work and play in the space.
