Did you know?

Wanted to celebrate Finland 100 years independence.

Couldn’t find on the net any – any! – photo of a Finnish flag made from Duplo blocks. Scanned the Lego and Duplo forums. Nothing. Went to the most known shop in Helsinki, in hope of finding a building area with loose blocks for spontaneous building. Strike-out.

The helpful lady guided me to call their other store, since they maintain a spontaneous building corner in that specific shop. Answers a young man – Yes they have a corner, but very few white bricks…

And looking at the average box-set for sale – you would be lucky to find more than 2 white blocks – any type of blocks in the set.

What to do? Looked at a few boxes on the second hand net in Finland. Perhaps someones’ photo of their complete collection spread out on the floor would show a lot of white pieces. Nope.

But wait! Houses have large white plates, that could work as the white colored area of the flag. Long story short, I carried home a new box…

About the Author.

Martin R.C. Andersson started out as a mechanical engineer, slowly developing a soft spot for project management in which he worked 10 years.
Although having resigned from a corporate career within project management, the soft spot he keeps alive through a keen interest in room environment treatment. By control of sound and light, looking to tweak for that noise-free listening… which should be a norm.
Values silence, and now and then solitude.
Thinks Mindfulness is a ‘state of being’ when work really gets done.
When thoughts flow – without disruption – to reach either a creative state or finish what’s at hand.

When the outside world is tuned out, performance is tuned in.
Feels best when Minimalism, Functionalism and Art come together, crossing paths.
