DIY household items

UK-based designer David Steiner turned his house into a factory and became a master of home gadgetry. Using common household appliances and fixtures, Steiner was able to create everything from cutlery to serving trays.

For example, this lampshade was cut from a baking tray with scissors before being pressed into form using a door jam.

Then there’s the sugar paste cup, which was molded using a mixer as a pottery wheel.

Speaking to Dezeen, Steiner said that he wanted to show what he could create with things he already owned.

“The project began as an experiment in self-sufficiency, to some extent a reaction against the growing prevalence of desktop digital manufacture,” Steiner said.

Sounds like he isn’t too hot on 3D-printing. Watch Steiner’s DYI factory in action below.
