Making fire with IKEA products

I stumbled across this video and couldn’t stop watching till the end.  Its a good lesson in using things we have at home to create survival tools.  I hope you have some of the same thoughts that I did.

Helmut Smit is a artist/designer. This brilliant Ikea Hack “harks back to one of humanity’s basic needs: making fire.” As Ikea does not sell matches or lighters, Smits has taken cues from the wartime necessity of burning furniture to keep warm, and created a fire from an Ikea rope, hanger, wine rack, egg cup, napkins, and floral embellishments.
