SCREW IT is a collection of small 3D-printed objects that are specifically designed to give everyday objects a second life in a creative way. By adding a 3D-printed part, these objects acquire new meaning and functionality.
David Graas (born in 1970) studied Product Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Since 2004, he has been working as an independent designer. His work explores the relationship between products and their users, specifically how these products are valued and why. He sees himself as a guerrilla designer, fighting the current industrial model in a peaceful way. Hacking the system of mass production that provides the same products everywhere, with no character and no durability, he proposes an alternative that is more elegant and returns control to the users of his products.
