Rip-offs from designers
We've all seen it, and for a lot of people, it's why we're here: simple, neat, easily-executed ideas presented as high art or grand design, and sold at jaw-dropping prices.
The latest example I've come across is these coat-hooks. Cut from brass and stainless steel, they are going to be "launched" at the London Design Festival but Visuallyod.
A launch event. For coat hooks? Cut and bent from a bit of brass sheet?
I shudder to think of the price as well - there's no price on their own website, but they charge £490 ($750) for some sticks cast in pottery and tied together with old string.
Anyway, rant over (for now). What examples of rip-off design have you seen? What examples have you copied?
EDIT: Sudden thought - even if you haven't made them yourselves, what are your favourite examples of Instructables recreating designer rip-offs at budget prices?
