Thomas Thwaites: The Joy Of Taking Things Apart [PSFK 2013]
Watch toaster tinkerer Thomas Thwaites talk about the power of DIY in anticipation of this year's PSFK CONFERENCE 2013 in New York.
How much do we really know the items we use everyday in our homes? After hearing about Thomas Thwaites’ experimental Toaster Project, it seems that the answer is…not a lot. Thwaites, a ‘speculative’ designer, set out to create a toaster entirely from scratch, sourcing the appropriate materials and assembling the final product. He spoke about his venture and about the DIY movement at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON 2010.
