Lego bricks have long been adult building fodder for furnituresculpturesfashion accessories, and other items often requiring thousands of pieces. The company’s own Danish headquarters are inspired by the iconic shape of the Lego brick.

But now thanks to New York City–based EverBlock, you can construct life-sized modular furniture, room dividers, temporary special event structures, and even disaster relief shelters made of giant foot-long Lego-inspired modular building bricks.

EverBlock bricks include interlocking 12-inch, 6-inch, and 3-inch blocks and a foot-long finishing cap in a variety of colors. Made from a chemical- and weather-resistant rigid polypropelyne co-polymer, the bricks can be cleaned with standard cleaning solutions, and outdoor structures can be pressure-washed.

While no glue is necessary to assemble the pieces, which can be disassembled and reassembled at will, the company offers connector clips, hanging clips, and reinforcement rods as well as metal base plates and feet for more demanding structures, as well as design services and a virtual 3-D builder on its website to help novice builders tackle the inevitable challenges of making the life-sized building bricks into sound structures for everyday use.
