Living in a busy metropolitan, city we come across lots of lonely pallets most of which are in pretty good shape – just waiting for adopting parents.
A group of two industrial designers and an architect decided to co-found Molet, a DIY product line whose center material is the wooden lonely pallet we all find laying on many street corners.
My experience started with a birthday surprise from my wife – a Molet workshop.
The workshop brings together 5-6 couples with their own creative and somewhat wild ideas about what they would like to gain from the workshop.
I knew I was the Kitchen kind of guy, who wanted to give my workspace the “custom” touch with my own practical creation, thus I chose to create a Classic Molet, I will later share how it looked like.
Not sure how many times you took a piece of wood and let your hands go wild with creative inspiration,
but as soon as I saw the workshop and the tools it had to offer, it gave my ideas power, power to experiment.
It started with measuring and cutting, a lot of edge smoothing and hole-drilling, safety was also a main concern, as most of us had very little experience with these tools.
The Molet team would assign 2-3 employees to help us out, with the planning and the execution.
Together we would sketch the product we wanted, choose the right pallets and carry out the mission, modulate our pallet.
A lot of personal touch went into these creations, we used color sprays to differentiate our Molet from the others, and we were also allowed to bring our own “add-ons”, I added wine corks as hanger hooks, others brought special designer/oriental products such as closet knobs.
I am sure you are all wondering what the final product is, and was it worth it?
So before I show off the product, I want to say it was an experience I will never forget, one I will repeat at the first opportunity.
I enjoyed every part of the workshop and have to say that this product absolutely lit up my kitchen.
Feel free to reach out to the Molet team to see how you can also get as lucky as I did and get yourself a DIY Molet kit. All you need is a screwdriver to build your beauty and a drill if you want to hang it on your wall J, the rest is provided to you by the Molet team to your home.
