Tejo Remy, designer. Droog Design. I saw this piece at a Design history exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh in September 2010. I also saw another version of this chest of drawers in the MoMA (NYC) in June this past summer, 2011. Beautiful object.
Here is the information about it:
You Can’t Lay Down Your Memories, designed 1991 (maple, recycled drawers, and jute strap)
This “bundled” chest of drawers has no fixed form. “The recycled and mismatched drawers are interchangeable and can be combined or removed at will.” Cool, right?!
A tidbit about Droog Design: Design collaborative/cooperative created as a reaction to extravagant and unnecessary objects created in the 1980s. “Droog advocated low-tech, recycled materials, while protesting against the increasing consumerism of modern society.”
