More about the brains behind the LEGO 1984 Mac:

Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken have recreated a design classic with a modern twist. This project is testament to how a brand can sometimes move in a full circle. Kinsella and Bakken (both big fans of LEGO) recreated a scale model of the 1984 classic, Apple Macintosh. Then with a few simple adjustments to the design, they were able to incorporate the Apple iPad into the design. The result; a super cool looking place to dock the iPad, read the newspaper, or watch a film.

Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken are creatives in advertising, currently working in Oslo, Norway.
