Look!: Gallery of Repurposed Objects

Or, How a Waterwing Became a Lampshade. We don’t read German, but by some midnight internet path as disappeared as Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumbs, we managed to find this German website with picture after picture of creative repurposing of everyday objects.

This seems to be inspired by, or perhaps a variant of Chindogu, the art of useless inventions and a term coined by Japanese inventor and author Kenji Kawakami.

Unlike Chindogu, however, we see this more like a very creative and witty form of recycling.

We’ve divined that an entity named Atelier V is somehow involved, but that’s it. If you happen to be a reader who speaks German, perhaps you could shed some caution-orange light on the project.
