IKEA is a phenomenon. In almost every country everyone knows BILLY, everyone has a BUMERANG… The same great and functional products are readily available around the globe and inspire people to hack the products to make their individual furniture out of them.
One master of redesigning IKEA product is Antonio Scarponi, an Italian designer based in Zurich and founder of Conceptual devices (http://www.conceptualdevices.com).
Antonio wants to create new manuals for readily available materials. Affordable and easy manuals for things everyone can build at home.
