Hack-your-IKEA and win design fame!

Platform21, BRIGHT and Superuse call on you to hack an IKEA flat pack. Make your own design out of it with a small alteration or perpetrate an out-and-out hack that gives the object a whole different function.
Then take pictures or make a video and send it in with a brief statement. Tell us what it is, how you made it, and the name of your new product, if it has one. Email your entry to billy@bright.nl by Monday 15 September.

This contest is part of the programme Platform21 = Hacking IKEA, which takes place 7 through 28 September at Platform21 during 4 Weeks of Freedesigndom.
The winning design will be exhibited at the 2009 Montreal Biennial, of which Platform21 = Hacking IKEA will be part. It will also be displayed at the BRIGHT stand during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The jury members are:
- Erwin van der Zande, BRIGHT editor-in-chief
- Scott Burnham, creative director of the 2009 Biennale Montreal
- C├ęsare Peeren of Superuse and 2012architecten
The award ceremony will take place on Sunday 21 September at 14:30.
