Ikea My Way - Furniture From Ikea Hangers...
During my visit to Poland's biggest design fair - Arena Design - one of the exhibitions I explored the most was Ikea My Way. Ikea together with Fine Arts Academy in Wroclaw organized a competition for students to create furniture from already existing items from their offer. Since I myself have furniture made from weird objects in my apartment, I looked in awe at the examples of their creativity. Lamps made of rubbish bins or seats made of little dog toys. This chair / wine rack / magazines holder by Maciej Pala won in the Best Design In The Lowest Price category. It uses plastic clothes hangers, that are less than 30 cents each, to create a multi-functional piece of furniture.
