Tejo Remy & René Veenhuizen

After yesterdays post about gordons' villa, I felt the urge of getting a bit deeper into what interior design is all about. Today this brought me to Tejo Remy & René Veenhuizen.

Tejo and René are a design duo who have been active together since 2000. Some of their designs you are most probably familiar with.

Hereby my wishlist:

The Milk Bottle lamp
The milk bottles hang just above the floor in rows of three by four as in Dutch milk crates from the old days.

 The Rag Chair
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. Each piece is unique; a treasure-chest of memories.

The Chest of Drawers #100
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.

The unique number 100 has been made in collaboration with Dutch jewellery designer Ted Noten who created a special perspex drawer. Items that are usually hidden away, like a revolver, cocaine and diamonds, are now fixed in the material forever.

The Concrete Chair and Bench
Furniture that appears to be made of inflated fabric, but is actually made from poured concrete.

Please leave your thoughts in the comments, I'd like to hear your opinion!
