making it possible for individual users to build their own electronic appliances, eindhoven-based designer weilun tseng has produced an open system of modular pieces. influenced by current issues around electronic sustainability and the environment, the flexible items seek to help lower unnecessary consumption. similar to playing with lego, one simple module enables the user to expand the design to their personal needs. the series of flexible, electronic building elements includes; a rotating module, lighting module, air-heating module, liquid-heating module, and warming module. each of which can function independently, while being interchanged with supporting parts, giving endless possibilities for producing, repairing and adapting to the owner’s requirements. a sustainable focus on the appliances’ function, rather than its brand, packaging and style, as well as the easy breakdown and replacement of each module helps to extend the life of the ‘open e components.’

 

‘open e-components’ is also selected to be participating in the exhibition ‘mastering design’ in MUDAC, museum of contemporary design and applied arts in lausanne, switzerland from october 31, 2013 to february 9, 2014.
