Tinker.it! is organising a workshop for the Torino Design Week focused on building lamps and other kinds of luminaries by hacking Ikea products. The workshop takes place the 26-27-28 October 2009, between 9:00 and 12:00.
David Cuartielles started doing these back in sweden and we thought we could “import” the concept into Italy and allow a group of young designers to learn how to use Arduino while building lamps that will be displayed during the Torino Design Week.
The workshop benefits from the support of IED Torino, the “Istituto Europeo di Design” who are kindly providing us with the space.

Tinker.it! wishes to thank Prof. Paolo Maccarrone for inviting us to hold this workshop and Davide Gomba for helping us organise.
