Machines at Designersblock 2012
There were many experimental installations at this year’s Designersblock exhibition. Love Me Bender from Breaded Escalope is an DIY approach that uses steam bending techniques to rescue discarded furniture and give it new life. The team gave demonstrations of how the low-tech, low-energy, steam-bending mobile machine works.

Inspired by the history and aesthetics of Peckhams industrial past, namely the Edison Bells gramophone factory and record label, the challenge is: To Design and produce a machine capable of playing a record within the set 24 hour period. The pinball machine was on display as the result of a previous challenge.
