Please welcome the LEGO® Ideas 21347 Red London Telephone Box set! This iconic recreation was originally brick-built and submitted by our British fan designer John Cramp aka Bricked1980 in 2022.
Released in the same year that the K2 Telephone Box celebrates its 100th anniversary, the new LEGO set is inspired by the iconic red and black structure that is a quintessential symbol of London.
The perfect set for display, features 1460 LEGO elements, an opening door, a light brick in the roof to illuminate the K2 Telephone Box when pushing down the top, and a lamppost with flowerpots and a cobbled street, invoking a sense of nostalgia and an enduring connection to a city that seamlessly blends history with modernity.
“The K2 red phone box is seen as a British cultural icon throughout the world, and we’re delighted that the LEGO Group are celebrating the 100th anniversary of its design with this model. Fast forward to today and whilst communications have rapidly evolved, the iconic K2 continues to play a part in communities through BT’s Adopt a Kiosk scheme. As we continue to build the next generation of communication networks, we’re proud that more than 7,200 phone boxes have already been adopted across the UK, repurposed into mini libraries and life-saving defibrillators, among others” said Michael Smy, Head of Street at BT Group
Talking about his inspiration for the design, John a.k.a. Bricked1980 said: “For this LEGO Ideas project, I wanted to build something iconic and something I felt would appeal to both LEGO fans and people who are not necessarily big LEGO fans as well. Being born and bred in Great Britain I’ve always loved the classic red phone boxes which have become British cultural icons and are recognised around the world.” You can learn much more about what inspired John to create his submission through his 10K Club Interview.
John's terrific concept was brought to life as an official LEGO Ideas set by LEGO Model Designer Marina Stampoli and Graphic Designer Claus Madsen.
