Holding it together

0803 Droog design chest of drawers
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
A Droog design chest of drawers from the current design exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. Fabulously inventive, although you do wonder if operating the drawers would weaken the structure. It's a bit of a metaphor, too, all the stuff of life we hold together, the drawers we open readily, those we keep closed, their contents away from the eyes of the world. The way in which days are a patchwork, united by their connection to each individual, the individual collection of stuff that belongs to us, our lives, each day.

The name of this piece is: "You can't lay down your memories".

This is the Powerhouse's page on this item from their collection:
