My girlfriend’s parent’s house is amazing. A dad that’s not afraid to poke around and repair broken household appliances has caused their home to seemingly stick in the 70’s. His attitude to electronics now days has been utterly lost. No eyelids are fluttered when replacing broken TV’s or toasters. It is sad, not only because of the massive environmental damage it does, but also the lack of love and memories we have for our belongings.
This is why Samuel Carr is onto a winner with his set of kitchen appliances which require only a coin to dismantle. Clever engineering choices mean things like timers, which are prone to fail, are positioned where they can be removed and replaced quickly and easily.
