Legos used in set design?

I read this great article in Raindance by Patrick Tucker. "When you are planning a production – for screen or stage – it is important to get it obvious to you what will happen on the day. How often do we imagine how it will look with a sofa and a table and a chair, but when we get on the set, it is quickly apparent that there will be no room for all the moves and business you have planned with all that clunky furniture around. This is where Lego comes in."
Built out of Lego, you can construct tables, chairs, sofas, all in the approximate relative sizes, and then fit them in to the model of your set (or just on top of the ground plan) to see how the space works, and how you can fit your planned moves and business into the available furniture arrangements.
