”Dat kan mijn kleine nichtje ook”, a statement which haunts museums and exhibitions. A statement to classify one’s work as tinkering. This statement raised questions to me about where tinkering ends and design begins and if tinkering is as negative as they suggest.
In this project I researched the positive aspects of tinkering and how I could acquire these in product design. By translating tinkering techniques into production techniques, I looked for how I could translate the tinkering atmosphere into product design. With these 2 furniture pieces I want to let the viewer experience the joy of making with a work that also puts the statement ‘’Dat kan mijn kleine nichtje ook’’in a different light and wonders whether this comment is actually as negative as it seems.
