The first collection of /nodesignforpeople is dedicated to the DIY culture. These pieces, stories and the inspirations behind them intend to go beyond the general topics of the concept, with an aim to re-shape the common idea of a DIY object. The aim of this collection is to accentuate the decay and the loneliness of the well-known and beloved phenomenon of DIY.
What kind of design can those deserted DIY store parking lots inspire? What do we consider a product, what is material and what is an object if our only access to the world of design and its processes are DIY or builder supply stores at the farthest end of the suburbs? How do we think about naturalness and how can we define beauty and its purpose in this situation? What is our inspiration when our eternal knowledge and wisdom feeds on our immediate urban environment while, at the same time, our expectations are formed by trendy images depicting design floating around the web? What kind of deviant design could evolve from this contradiction?
These furniture are not made to provide answers to the above questions but to highlight them. Every piece of furniture has a booklet and a comic within representing real emotions, decisions taken and the discoveries made during the lengthy design and construction process.
