MODA presents an afternoon of “chair hacking” at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
Known for their classic Swedish simplicity, many IKEA products contain components that are simple in form and consistent in their application. This inherent configurability has created an underground movement of “IKEA hacking” where people modify, rebuild, reconfigure and customize IKEA pieces to fit their needs.
In keeping with this trend, teams of students, professionals, artists and/or hackers are invited to explore what a piece of IKEA furniture can become. Teams will be given an IKEA chair, three hours, and tasked with making anything but a chair. Prizes for best hacks will be given.
To participate, just assemble your own team of 2-4 participants and register by contacting Katie Simms at 404.856.5961 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 8.
