Tobias Juretzek, DEU, 2011
Trousers, shirts, and skirts, the old leftover items of clothing. Broken, worn out, too big, too small – no longer wearable. But full of memories. It is a shame to throw them out, to give them to recycling collectors. Pressed into new shapes, into chairs, they can still be “owned” and used. With all the memories.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
After studying at the School of Arts and Design Kassel, Germany, and working freelance for Studio Makkink & Bey, and others, Tobias Juretzek founded his own design studio in 2011. His works are both experimental and also the result of his fascination for technologies, materials and forms. On this basis a playful approach, curiosity and the pleasure of magical moments lead to astonishing projects.
