LEGO x MoMA
LEGO has now revealed a new LEGO® Ideas The Starry Night set based on Vincent van Gogh’s famous 1889 painting. Inspired by the view from his window at the Monastery of Saint-Paul de Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy, France, van Gogh’s original painting and subsequent LEGO rendition, depicts a dazzling night sky and the sleeping Provence village below. The three-dimensional set was designed by Truman Cheng, a 25-year-old LEGO fan and PhD student based in Hong Kong who submitted the work through the LEGO Ideas platform.
The LEGO® Ideas The Starry Night set available from May 25 exclusively for LEGO VIP and MoMA members, followed by a global release on June 1 at the LEGO website, MoMa website, and MoMA Design Store in New York City for $170 USD.
