Influenced by the currently very popu-lar do-it-yourself movement, the contemporary design scene is increasingly shaped by a creative fusion of production and consumption. When it comes to the development of a self-made furniture culture, this book project combines for the first time design history research and consumerism theory with numerous historical and contemporary construction instructions and interior design recommendations. Across five chapters, design history and everyday culture are vividly and closely examined. What are their ori- gins? Which media and channels are used to pass on experiences and prac-tical instructions? Who exchanges in-formation with whom and under what circumstances? And what has changed since the advent of the era of digital modernity?
