Ready-made in Design

Ready-made in Design makes everyday objects extraordinary with one use being what they are and the other being, creative art. Max Kuwertz and Yanik Balzers were students in Germany’s Koln International School of Design when the idea began as an Intermediate Project titled ‘Ready-made in Design’. This project stimulated their imaginations so much that they came up with some pretty unique, sometimes comical, but ultimately really cool pieces.

Without too many changes to the ready-made object, they just added a glass piece to some tool boxes and voila, a classy end table. Keeping the design simple yet having some fun with it, they attached two axes together with some boards and slammed it against the wall and sha-bang, a rustic meets modern shelf.  These designers are clever leaving us with the challenge to think outside the typical box.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
