Hacking Ikea

University of Brighton (UK) student Kieren Jones came up with a brilliant design concept for The British Council’s annual student design competition... a DIY Ikea project called "Flat-pack re-arranged". Using Ikea self-assemble furniture and Jones' instructions, anyone can make objects that Ikea never dreamed of. Pictured above, the parts from Ikea's Bumerang clothes hangers rearranged to create a deer head and crossbow that shoots Ikea pencils.

No word yet if Jones will sell the instruction manuals.
