Life-Size Assembly Kits Pop Out To Create Household Tools [Pics]

Miniature models get super sized to create these items necessary for adult life.

Building miniature models may be enough for some people, but Swedish artist Michael Johansson wasn’t satisfied. As a result, he has created a series of life-size injection-molded assembly kits that consists of boats, gardening tools, and other everyday objects.

Creating the pieces involved breaking down the original objects into various components that could then be rebuilt at a later stage. While breaking the objects down is important, Johansson also urges his viewers to look at the components of each object and see how they relate to one another.
