Object Abuse!

For its latest exhibition, Object Abuse, London's KK Outlet challenged a group of artists and designers to transform an everyday object, repurposing it to create an entirely new item, using as little additional materials as possible. It's well worth a visit. I especially liked the cut up for sale signs, rebuilt in to bird boxes and the London brick book ends by designers Deadgood.
