Coming Attractions

Wandering around the net last week I ran across a thrilling concept: a four by eight foot sticker designed to be applied to a sheet of plywood and used like a sewing pattern to cut out DIY furniture. It’s promised for soon and is bound to make the local condo handy-shop very happy.

A few days later the Dutch design giant sent a message announcing a mid-April design conference about downloadable design. I anticipate a harmonic convergence of DIY culture and digital communications.

Craft is dead-end for its own sake, but dead cool when it can accomplish a given task faster, greener, easier, and cheaper than market alternatives.
