The new LEGO set, which recently released on the official online store, depicts a map of the world with different configuration depending on which region you wish to be in the centre. The primary design for the ocean is of a bathymetric map measuring the depth, but Fiorella states that the design is meant to inspire free building should builders wish to pursue it.
“When we’re making a set like this, there’s a lot of involvement from other creatives,” explains the designer. “I think that the group effort involved has been absolutely essential for us to make this map the way it is and for it to look as great as it does.”
Fiorella also teases at another hidden reference on the map that means a lot to her, and someone may have already found it.
