Top-10 Log Hack ideas

Log Stools by Pfeifer Studio

Lets go back to basics people…Where better to start than with the basic log? Logs are pretty much as basic as it gets, and they´re universally recognizable due what is practically a worldwide supply…As material for building, they´ve been around forever..making modern plastics and composites look like temporary fads…The accessibility and the basic, solid features [...]

The Pallet Office

Doesn´t this scraphacked pallet office make you look straight into the (sad) eyes of your boring office space? I find it really weird that offices in general are so boring, that they get so little love! It´s weird since we spend so much time at the work place and since we seem to have so [...]

(Le-)go for it!

The splendid Lego Table

How come there are so little Lego furniture…When there are so much Lego? I mean we all know how to use it, yet we somehow don´t really apply the Lego Logic to other usages…Approximately 400 billion pieces have been made since 1958…and as we speak, 36 000 more are being molted each minute…That means there [...]

Who needs Pollock?

Pollock D.I.Y

I´ve always liked the artist Jackson Pollock – ”Jack the dripper” – and his trademark Action Painting technique (and any abstract messy art for that matter)…However, for most of us, Pollocks stuff are inaccessibly pricey (back in 2006 one classic drip painting was sold by Hollywood entertainment mogul David Geffen for a staggering $140 million…). [...]

D.I.Y Octopus Chandelier

Octopus Lamp

Saw this easily hacked idea in a store, I call it the octopus chandelier.  The retail price of this statement piece was about $2500/₤1600. I am thinking you could make it yourself for about 10% of that. As you can see there´s a total of 16 lamps connected to a central ring. As this type [...]
