LIBRE OBJET

diy furniture via au pays des merveilles

As I mentioned in this week’s pretty things post, me and my friends participated in the workshop ‘Libre objet’ in Brussels organized by Mathieu Gabiot.  The first day was spent discussing copyright and open source design (a form of co-creation, where design information is shared publically and the final product is designed and built by the users) , followed by thinking about Mathieu’s design ‘Bouctje’ (a small book rack, pictured above) and how we could transform it into our own design.  The second day was spent on constructing our own version of the Bouctje, resulting in everything from a version with an added side table, a rocking chair our a double version.  Soon, you will be able to download drawings and instructions on how to construct our designs.  Of course I will let you know when these come online, but for now you can click below and try to figure it out from this extensive photo report!

Prouldy presenting my piece of DIY furniture: and altered version of the Bouctje book rack on the left, a little sidetable on the right.  In the future I want to add a mat piece of perspex and a light bulb on the right and make a light element out of it.  The hole in the table top is for my flower pot.  I’ll show you the finished version as soon as it’s done! It’s an altered version of my friend Miguel’s design, pictured below on the right.

    supercooool! ze hebben hier in helsinki echt een enorme hout werkplaats – en hout is gratis, want als er iets is wat finland in overvloed heeft dan is het wel bomen – maar ik ben een beetje bang voor alle grote machines :p dus ik ga langzaam proberen iets kleins te maken…
