1000 Drawers

Wouldn't it be neat if you took a drawer from each piece of furniture your kid had as they grew up and made one big piece of furniture out of it?

Entwurf-Direkt is a cooperative store in Hamburg, Germany that functions as an art space and workshop all in one. It also serves to educate anyone who would like to do more with the furniture they have, thus doing their bit to help the environment. Their most recent project is the 1,000 Orphan Drawers which takes unused mismatched dresser drawers and outfits them with a new dresser in a unique shape. The design is to help encourage people to reuse what's available to them in a out-of-the-dresser sort of way. http://www.entwurf-direkt.de/indexenglish.html -via Craftzine

Seriously? I had one dresser growing up, and the one I bought when I was 19 I still have at age 30. I barely had enough drawers to constitute one dresser, let alone many pieces of furniture from which I could take pieces to make another fully functional piece of furniture.

I knew consumerism was bad, but has pragmatism died completely?
