You Can’t Lay Down Your Memory Chest of Drawers
Tejo Remy’s concept for this chest is a functional and visual marker of spaces to hold and retain memories. By creating a new context for old, forgotten parts (the drawers), he recycles the works and the meaning found within and around them. In 2008, the High sent out a statewide call for submissions of drawers from any type of furniture to be included; the chosen entries were assembled on site by Remy based on the original design Remy first debuted with Droog in 1991. His design philosophy champions a more responsible, moral, and simplistic approach, as demonstrated with these repurposed drawers.
