Think Lego

So while we begin to Ideate around the equipment design and user space, Something came to my mind which I passed on to Bogdan. ‘Think Lego’. Riding also on the principle that Aggi the conductor gave to us K.I.S.S.  Project execution begins from this week and I felt it would be good to have such principles at the back of our minds.

The name ‘LEGO’ is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, meaning “play well”. The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. The Company has passed from father to son and is now owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder. The Lego brick in its present form was launched in 1958. The interlocking principle with its tubes makes it unique, and offers unlimited building possibilities. It’s just a matter of getting the imagination going – and letting a wealth of creative ideas emerge through play.

I played with Lego when i was much younger and I can’t begin to quantify the joy we got out of it, anyways the Lego principle as relates to design, is one where you start with the simplest of things and use it to build up more complex things like how Lego does, what more, its easy to move about and take apart and then made into something else.

From our interview with Agnes the conductor, we got the equipments had to be founded on the following

  • Adaptability
  • Stability
  • Flexibility
  • Mobility
  • Warmness
  • Friendliness
  • Accessiblity

All the things that Lego embodies.

Also, considering our DNA, the building blocks of our lives, was something to ponder on.
