If a person could imagine a worst case scenario when it comes to Ikea furniture, two things come to mind: a piece is missing or, even worse, the manual is missing; in a way, that is what a person would be getting themselves into with the Everything But The Manual set. It is a modular furniture kit that is meant to be put together imaginatively. Although the designer's does point out, "The only limitation is your own imagination."

The Everything But The Manual furniture kit was conceived and developed by Dutch designer David Graas. It is shipped as a wooden cube made up of 177 identical oak building blocks. Riddled with holes, it can be screwed together in endlessly different ways. Thankfully, Graas as suggested three designs of his own: a dressing table, lamp and cuckoo clock.
