‘rememberme’ is a project about appreciation, relationships, separation and the notion of continuous reinvention. made from old clothing garments such as jeans, t-shirts etc., the chair addresses our current societal issues of sustainability and recycling, giving the, what would have been discarded garments, new life.

the wear and use of clothes gives the chairs a vibrant story. with ‘rememberme’, the personality of the clothes live on, acting as something like a three-dimensional, contemporary quilt, giving new expression to the materials, their original shape and life story.

  • I would think you can sit on them, but the fact that this is art, I would not do so.

    Mrs. Wireless says:
  • I have seen them in DMY last year, and yes you can seat on them. I think there a made from diping the cloth in a resin (like any carbon or glass fiber process) and compress in a mold

    raphili says:
  • yes, you can sit oon them.

    Emilio says:
  • why not give the cloths to someone who needs? thats what i do…
