„Making it yourself—be it a chair, a lamp or a table—is definitely a trend! Modifying and personalizing furniture and design objects offers an alternative to mass consumption and the unsustainable nature of many products. With the rediscovery of handicraft and the dissemination of designs and instructions in Internet there is a growing interest in making things oneself. The current “do-it-yourself” movement increasingly blends production and consumption in what is called a “prosumer” culture.“ Museum für Gestaltung
