The orchid display is truly special because it was designed to look like a real orchid, even down to mimicking how the flowers change over the seasons. The set of 771 can be customized by the user to create their own unique flower arrangements. ‘The design of this set was inspired by a real orchid we had in the office throughout the design process, so we could see how the flower changed through the seasons,’ explains Michael Psiaki, Lead Designer at the LEGO Group.
