One man’s trash: Tejo Remy’s work of art

These photos are from a design exhibition I went to at the National Museum in Stockholm. I’m not very into modern design like this, but I liked these particular pieces. They’re made by Tejo Remy, who finds old drawers and makes new enclosures for them, turning trash into art. He has been working with this anti-consumerism concept for over 20 years, and his work has been exhibited on the world’s top design museums such as MoMA and the Museum of Art and Design in New York.

I like this philosophy, and I think that Tejo Remy would approve of me redesigning some furniture, instead of just buying new ones.

    I like this too! And the art succeeds in making you think. I hope your own project is going well:)

    I like his work as well :)
    And he is Dutch. One of the drawers says “schroeven”, it means screws.

    This is so unique. I love how he has repurposed these drawers.

  5. Wow, that’s one pretty damn goodlooking set of drawers! I wonder if they are expensive. I love his ideas though, we consume way too much new things nowadays and don’t think we can recycle.
