The electric bell was first invented by British physicists in the mid 1800s following the invention of electromagnets. When current was passed through the wire, it creates an electromagnetic force which made the bell arm swing sideway and hit the bell, which then broke the current arm fell back. This action repeats, which causes vibration of the arm.
The bell is made of inner pot of rice cooker and the wooden board came from wine boxes. All upcycled materials are collected from Hong Kong.
Through this DIY kit, you can build an unique electric bell in the comfort of your home
Looking at the environmental crisis our world is facing, Kevin believes that designers have the responsibility to re-create the world for the better. Designs have to be sustainable by enriching the environment, users as well as the society.
Instead of continually draining new resources/materials to create new products, Kevin is experimenting with waste materials, reusing them to create new products and also collaborating with different NGOs to produce the products locally. He wishes to inspire people to have a new perspective of how products are being made, consumed and disposed.
