System D is 90 years old! A long life of passion, innovation, discovery and complicity with its readers. Time travel...
1924/1935 A BIKE NEVER DIES
Crankset, frame, tires, wheels... everything is good in a "bécane" reformed that will continue to live in parts, here in the form of tool rack... Two hacksaw blows, some hammer blows, and a shovel becomes a sickle.
1935/1945 VARIOUS KNIGHTS
System D could offer his readers to immortalize their voice by recording it on a disc covered with wax, but also to stick a saddle of bicycle on an old car rim to make a "comfortable" seat of workshop.
1945/1955 A REAL IDEAS BOX
A canoe becomes a pedal boat, a wheelbarrow aspirating pump and repressing... The readers are above all prolific inventors and their ideas, even the most absurd, have right of quotation in the pages of the magazine.
1955/1965 SOCIAL CHANGE
The society is changing and the "do-it-yourself magazine" too. Purely utilitarian at the beginning, she is more interested in leisure and does not forget the children with a permanent toy section.
1965/1975 FOR ALL TASTE
In the same issue, give the complete plans of an electric billiard and, a few pages later, propose to use a package of petit-suisse as egg cup, was a big gap that System D could do... brilliantly.
1975/1985 THE FRENCH TEAM
Hi-fi systems appear in homes, and the means to get the maximum satisfaction will make the success of many numbers. Birth of a passion: photography and the secrets of darkroom development.
1985/1995 IN THE AIR OF TIME
After 3 decades of economic progress, the crisis is here. The French are getting closer to nature and dream of cocooning in a house in front of a fire. The "chimney" subjects and the layout of the Renault 4Ls for camping are the recipe.
1995/2005 WITHOUT DECREASE ON THE TRADE...
Back to B.A.-BA, we start by relearning the good gestures: sawing, assembling, sticking, hanging... to carry out its development projects, from the kitchen to the sauna, to satisfy his desires at a lower cost. DIY becomes a family affair.
