Chest of drawers Tejo Remy

Chest of drawers had its première in 1991 and has since become a true Droog classic, an icon of conceptual design collected by museums such as MoMA and Museum of Art and Design in New York. A criticism on consumerism, Tejo Remy collected found drawers, gave them new enclosures and loosely bundled them into a chest. His pioneering vision was to make one’s own paradise with what one encounters, as Robinson Crusoë did on his island.
