‘You don´t have money for furniture? Then build it yourself’ is the motto of Hartz IV Möbel.com. Berlin based architect and rapper Van Bo Le-Mentzel created a manual for cheap self-made furniture that already helped hundreds of amateurs to bulit a cubic sofa, the ‘Berliner Hocker’ or a chair named ’24-Euro-Chair’. Van Bo Le-Mentzel made an online announcement to collect ideas and many have contributed, so the outcome of this ‘crowdsourcing’ has been wrapped up in a book called ‘Hartz IV Möbel’. You´ll find clever ideas, some shared wisdom as well as helpful instruction manuals.
You can purchase the book here at Hatje Cantz Verlag or win one of two books we raffle today. If you wanna win, just leave a comment in the comment box below. The winner will be selected randomly, he/she will be announced here on Friday, 27th of July. Good luck!
