A group of students at Les Ateliers-Paris Design Institute have collaborated to create Fabrique Hacktion – a simple set of urban interventions to help people and improve life in the city.

The students design and install functional objects, which they call ‘grafts’, around Paris using the school’s 3D printing facilities to make custom-built pieces in minimal time. Interventions include coat hooks that attach to walls, plastic bag recycling units, and iPhone chargers.

All designs are available to download to encourage other people in other cities to get involved. The open-source nature of the project creates the possibility of worldwide participation.
