Tenok

Vacuum cleaners are often thrown away with the motor still working as variation in dimensions and power requirements makes them difficult to reuse.

Tenok is an open-source DIY vacuum cleaner that can be equipped with most motors, hoses and power cords from disposed models. It can be built with simple tools and a desktop 3D-printer, home assembly equipping users to conduct their own repairs should a part break down. The humble wooden case is also designed to age gracefully, growing more characterful over time and encouraging users to keep the appliance long-term.
