Recession Designs

Interesting concepts from Recessions Designs, an Italian demonstration of homemade do-it-yourself design, which allows you to create functional and useful objects out of the most unexpected items.

An event-provocation on the theme of "DIY DESIGN" that ironically (but not too much) presents a way of "designing" that goes beyond current trends and returns the object's essential form and function to the forefront. Recession Design is a collection of objects created using everyday DIY products that are processed and assembled using common utensils and accessories. Featuring a design that is clean but not banal, essential but not meager, the objects show how a good project can result in high-level design, even with the use of readily available materials and utensils.

With the state of the world's economy, perhaps these ideas might become more handy than one would think.
