nynke boelens: all the things I keep inside

the cupboard filled with just the ‘right amount’ of object

there are some particular items which we have to keep, without any explanation as to why. ‘all the things I keep inside’, is a cupboard designed by nynke boelens which addresses this issue of over-collecting and keeping too much. the piece consists of 480 parts which are all inter-connected with elastic cord, making it flexible. the cupboard grows according to the amount of objects you put inside it, therefore no longer defining the exact number of things you can keep. the piece is on show now at the strijp-s in eindhoven, as part of dutch design week.

  • though theres still a LIMIT to the growth. Probably would have been better to use images that illustrate this unlimited growth, instead of shoes falling out of it? At no point does it look overstuffed….
