2016 (COMMISSIONED SETS)

MATERIALS: 136 LEGO pieces + black thread

DESIGNER'S COMMENTS: We made a working hoist with 5 strings! It's actually a very simple design by means of one rotating axle. Above the five reels are 8 pulleys to direct the strings according to the needs of the show. The tricky part was designing a strong frame that happens to look like the real metal frame. However, we would like to find some good cord that doesn't get so easily tangled - probably the one thing we would like to improve on this model.
