found these beautiful pieces at mocoloco. the humble bumerang clothes hanger is reborn as a stag’s head. with a few more hangers, you can form a crossbow to shoot ikea pencils at the stag, with no animals harmed in the process. how neat is that? it gets even better – take ikea’s bestselling poang armchair, add a few some twists, and out comes a sled. wow.
these were university of brighton (uk) kieren jones’ brilliant design concepts for the the british council’s annual student design competition – a diy ikea project called ‘flat-pack re-arranged’. perhaps the more ingenious part of it is that kieren has created do-it-yourself manuals that guide the user through the creation of the new products – suped up versions of ikea assembly instructions, i reckon.
i hope he sells the manuals, cause i’d be first in line. link.
