Harmless Weapons Made of Everyday Objects

Come a little closer to really see what these weapons are made of. Brighton-based designer, Kyle Bean specializes in hand-crafted models, set design and art direction. His recent work, Harmless Weapons, which he created for an article in CUT Magazine, is about yarn bombing and guerilla gardening. It’s simple yet clever, containing both emotion and meaning.

These harmless weapons follow the idea that: “Weapons can be used for good or evil. The good or evil is not inherent in the weapon but in the character of the user.” A weapon itself is just an object but, when it is picked up by a person with ill-intentions, the weapons becomes harmful and dangerous. Bean consistently proves that he is a master of design. Check out his portfolio on his website to see more of his intriguing works.
