After the rag chair, I sniffed a little further to find another piece by Tejo Remy. This time part of NYC's "Reclaiming Design" project from 2007. What I love about this is as much the playfulness as the provocation about fencing ourselves in or out. The tri-fecta of function, critique and pleasure.
This chair is layered from the contents of 15 bags of rags. It arrives ready made but the user has the option to recycle its own discarded clothes to be included in the design. Found this on Droog's Site and it made me very happy. Now the question becomes, why?
