In a nod to British heritage, the LEGO Group introduces the LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box 21347, capturing the essence of a classic symbol known worldwide. Paying homage to the centennial milestone of the K2 Telephone Box, this set draws inspiration from the iconic red and black form, synonymous with the rich tapestry of London.
Exploring the LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box 21347
If you recall, John’s fan creation, along with The Nightmare Before Christmas product idea, managed to earn the thumbs up of the LEGO Design Team during the LEGO Ideas Second 2022 Review Stage back in February of last year.
A testament to meticulous detailing, the LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box boasts an intricately crafted opening door, complemented by a roof adorned with a luminous brick, casting a warm glow upon the K2 Telephone Box when its top is pushed down.
The LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box includes a lamppost, embellished with flowerpots, and stands tall beside a charming cobbled street, evoking a nostalgic ambiance that seamlessly intertwines London’s historical roots with its modern spirit.
The Inspiration Behind the LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box
John Cramp’s visionary design is a testament to the LEGO Ideas program, an innovative platform where fans contribute designs, and fellow enthusiasts cast votes to bring these concepts to life as tangible LEGO sets. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the set cleverly incorporates a stand for mobile phones, adding a contemporary touch to its timeless design.
What the BT Group Has to Say About this Built-Brick Icon
Reflecting on this remarkable creation, Michael Smy, Head of Street at BT Group, expresses delight in the LEGO Group’s tribute to the 100th anniversary of the K2 red phone box. Recognized as a cultural icon worldwide, Smy notes the enduring significance of the K2 in modern times, as demonstrated through BT’s Adopt a Kiosk initiative.
More than 7,200 phone boxes across the UK have found new life, repurposed into mini libraries and life-saving defibrillators, showcasing the box’s adaptability in evolving communities. The launch of the LEGO Ideas Red London Telephone Box in February further celebrates the milestones achieved by this cultural icon.
