Chest of Drawers

"You Can't Lay Down Your Memory Chest of Drawers" 1991 by  Tejo Remy (Dutch, born 1960)
"Side 2" 1970 by Shiro Kuramata (Japanese, 1934-1991)
"49 Drawers" 1970 by Shiro Kuramata (Japanese, 1934-1991)
On view on the third floor of the Museum of Modern Art are three designs of chest of drawers. They are part of the collection of the Department of Architecture and Design. The pieces are works of furniture designers, Shiro Kuramata and Tejo Remy, two of a group of artists that turned to a "value system based on economy, simplicity and resposnibility."
