"Give me a hammer" "What do you want to do with it?" "I want to give it to my head / to those who do not like me". Thus recited an old song by Rita Pavone. Now it's different, and listening to Massimo Acanfora's advice, you can do a thousand things with a hammer. None have anything to do with violence, all with reuse furniture.
In fact, his book is completely dedicated to furniture reuse “And Now Si Ikrea. 25 Projects To Make Your Own Furniture With Used Objects ", published by Ponte delle Grazie in the ManualMente series. He, a journalist and editor, passionate about solidarity economy and critical consumption, could not have his say on reuse furniture. In these days, in these months, in these years the reuse furniture it was put aside like the same furniture to be reused. It used to be different, but it's never too late to dust off old objects piled up perhaps in the cellar or in the garage and give them a face. Maybe by unleashing the imagination, transforming them into a completely different thing. In reuse furniture this is also true, there are no rules.
In this manual-book "And Now Si Ikrea. 25 Projects To Make Your Own Furniture With Used Objects " there are all the useful indications for building furniture starting from used objects. Beautiful, affordable and fun furniture. And above all unique. This is the maximum value of the reuse furniture: being able to obtain real unique pieces that besides being "Zero impact" they are also non-repeatable, perfect for unleashing the envy of guests who, perhaps, would never imagine they are the result of reuse furniture. But yet.
The summer and autumn period, then, calls us all to roll up our sleeves and take a look into our homes to see "the ingredients" of reuse furniture, and then let loose with the imagination. With the hammer, too. With “And Now Si Ikrea. 25 Projects To Make Your Own Furniture With Used Objects " in hand, of course. In order not to improvise three-legged chairs.
