Salvaged pieces get a clever, modern twist in the home of eco designer Adrian Draigo
Indeed, one of the best things about Adrian’s creations is that some of his favourites can be whipped up at the kitchen table without any special tools or knowledge. “The clock was fun to do – we did it in an afternoon,” says Adrian. “The body of the clock is just an old sugar bowl that I drilled a hole in the bottom of to fit the clock mechanics inside. The numbers are all just cut from newspapers – mostly ads (which, when you look at them, are actually quite colourful and use lots of different fonts). So we just stuck those onto cardboard, so they stand proud of the wall.” And the end creation? A clock that would happily compete with a George Nelson classic.
From a creative point of view, these sorts of activities are also great to do with your children, and there is something very satisfying about coming up with your own creation rather than heading to the store to buy it. “Recycling not only saves the environment, reducing the strain on the world’s resources, it also saves you money,” says Adrian. It is a very strange fact that while we are constantly trying to declutter our homes of rubbish, we then refill them with yet more things.
