Billund, Denmark, 18 January, 2022: Explorers, get set for adventure! The LEGO Group has revealed the LEGO® Ideas The Globe, sure to spark fans’ imaginations of traveling around the world, exploring new places and building new memories.

Talking about how he approached the design, Guillaume said: “When approaching the design, I asked myself ‘what could be creative, educational and touch most of the world?’ And the answer was just ‘the world itself’”.
Federico Begher, LEGO Group Head of Global Marketing for Adults added: “What is so wonderful about this set is that, with a little imagination, it allows fans to discover the world through LEGO bricks. The globe is a symbol of dreams and aspirations of travel to come for all who are seeking a bit of adventure or for those looking to learn about our world. When reviewing Guillaume’s set we could see the passion he had for travel and adventure, but also for inspiring building fans everywhere. Our designers also relished the challenge of making this set spin.”
