Wardrobe of Suitcases

The Dutch have done it again! The graduate show at Dutch design school, Design Academy Eindhoven, is showing Maarten De Ceulaer’s A Pile of Suitcases as part of Dutch Design Week.

“While the project seems simple enough—a wardrobe made from a grouping of suitcases—it evinces de Ceulaer’s peculiar philosophy of combining the poetic with the practical: “I try to base my designs on a strong, simple and pure concept… to question what I see around me, and translate that in an object. I think poetry, humour and communication of ideas are very important aspects of my designs, but at the same time I want to make useful and functional objects with that way of thinking.” A Pile of Suitcases wardrobe comes with “well-measured compartments” and “steel profiles [that] keep the pile firmly together.” In its construction, the piece responds to the very real needs of its user.”

Sign me up for one! I always love when furniture looks like one thing but is in fact another. Plus the retro feel of the suitcases is just too awesome.

    I love this blog, hun! I also showed it to Amy and she was particularly smitten with the bento boxes, but I’ve got to say, I love this armoire.
