KK Outlet presents Object Abuse as part of London Design Festival.
The KK Outlet challenged a group of leading artists, designers and stylists to take an everyday object, remould, rebuild and repurpose it to create an entirely new item using as little additional materials as possible.
Here's my response:
Title: Treacle Lung
Description: A kinetic device for smoking cigarettes.
Materials: Lyle's Black Treacle tin, Brass, wood, marigold rubber glove and cigarette (not supplied).
Dimensions: Height 28 cm / 11".
Power: Hand cranked.
Here's the how to make it guide from my friend Monsieur Cabinet
The full collection of transformed works will be show at Outlet throughout September as part of London Design Festival and the ICON Design Guide.
Each item will be for sale during the show with all proceeds being donated to the St Monica’s of Hackney Primary School Art Department.
