Chest of drawers by 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.
Rag Chair by Tejo Remy, 1991

Tree trunk bench by Jurgen Bey, 1999
A fallen tree can serve as a seat. The addition of bronze classical chair backs makes it a proper piece of furniture, a crossing between nature and culture. Jurgen Bey makes clear that it is ridiculous to transport trees when they are locally available. Therefore only the chair backs are for sale.
