Long-term collaborators with this great event, Hendzel+Hunt from MADE IN PECKHAM set themselves a 24 hr. Design Challenge making furniture and even a pinball from all sorts of recycled found objects.
BreadedEscalope studio presented their low-tech, low-energy, steam-bending machine and showed the public how it worked at this year’s bustling Designersblock event.
As 50% of the world’s computer waste ends up in four small villages in China, Kuan Ting Liao decided to draw attention to the issue by knitting all sorts of objects from found materials.
One of the weirdest and most wonderful surprises we come across at this year’s event was a non-profit arts organization called Exploring Senses that recycles old toys into bizarre new creations.
