Smart design from student Richard Burrow creating a minimalistic yet practical solution to an often heavy tool - via Leibal:
Presented at the London graduate show, New Designers, Foldable Sewing Machine is a minimalist design created by Richard Burrow. As the name implies, Burrow designed the sewing machine’s folding functionality in order to reduce waste and allow for easier mobility and storage.
“Too often we are encouraged to throw away something when it is broken, and replace it with something new. Clothing items are regularly thrown as we believe its often cheaper to replace than repair. When in most cases it isn’t. Sewing Machines are often designed in a similar way, with many being over designed with far too many features. They are also big, and bulky.”
