The German studio Entwurf-Direkt has been around since 2001 and is as much an art space as a furniture store. Each of their ‘Mismatch Drawers’ are build in close collaboration with the clients and are absolutely unique. All their dressers and chest are built in cooperation with young carpenters.
Per Schumann explained the idea behind using old drawers.
“I have always been fascinated by all things used or discarded; in particular, old drawers are just ‘my thing.’ They are the mute servants that help us through our daily lives, containing all kinds of secret things or just bric-a-brac”.
“Drawers that stand out for their attractive craftsmanship or else for their being slightly bizarre or telling us a story or two, reflecting life in all its facets. Our wish is to revive the very beauty of those things, the life they have lived — in a manner that is both fresh and simple.”
