I Heart Tejo Remy

Dutch designer Tejo Remy has been using reclaimed materials to create his iconic furniture and products since the early 1990s. His sustainable, witty creations also serve as criticism on overproduction and consumerism.


Built out of layered rags, the Rag Chair can be customized by adding or interchanging fabric.

Chest Of Drawers is a comprised of found drawers. The shape evolves as the drawers are rearranged.
A newer design, Remy's Recycled Blanket Rug uses rolled strips of old blankets.
