For quite some time, I’ve been interested in very mundane and ordinary objects. A few years ago, I founded the magazine Ordinary
, which takes a closer look at all these ordinary objects that surround us every day, with the intention to turn them into something extraordinary. I love these very simple transformations into something completely new, and that was also the starting point of Mundane Machines
The objects around us are all turning into smart-devices that already do the work for us, like fridges ordering food, heaters knowing exactly what temperature an individual person likes, or cars that drive in auto-pilot. Inspired by that, I imagined a Transformer-like scenario where not only cars would turn into advanced robots but even your boring sofa or washing machine would too!
