I hate tidy rooms, perfect ones, but the mess annoys me to death. In my room, no, in every room I’ve ever had and including my current one, the problem is always the clothes.
q: We know where to put dirty clothes, we know where to put the clean ones, but where should we put the clothes that we have already used but still want to wear it?

On the bed is not possible. The bed is the bed. The only leftover object is the chair, this mythical one, which appears to have an asset: that backrest, 750 or 780mm (800mm, it’s also ok) from the ground, has written in a red neon “ideal for any type of clothing. Please use provisionally. “

I conclude that the chair is the most universal rack of all time, and this was enough to make me question the rack’s archetype. But the chair as rack, has a problem: the seat, which only serves to accumulate pounds of clothing. That mess I was talking in the beginning.

The chair is a complex object and its morphology always depend on the function that it was designed for. A dining chair is a dining chair, an office chair is an office chair, a dentist chair is a dentist chair, a beach chair is a beach chair. I hought that a clothes’s chair should be a clothes’s chair and I took off the seat.
From a chair it just have the backrest. It is intended to stand clothes.

About Remix:
Under the program BIP/ZIP (districts and zones of priority intervention in lisbon, sponsored by the city of Lisbon (CML), The Association Entremundos and Cultural Theater Group “Contra Senso”, together with the council of Marvila (JFM) as partner, are developing the project Remix – to intervene and recreate, which affect “Bairro do Armador” – a critical area, characterized by insecurity due to the consumption and trafficking of drugs and sparse urban hygiene (poor garbage collection and no clean street).
The project with a duration of 8 months, aims to raise awareness among the population, particularly children and young people to civic behavior enjoyment of public space in the neighbourhood, co-responsibility to the residents through their active involvement for the preservation, creation and maintenance of public spaces and train a group of people with entrepreneurial skills to enable them to creatively find solutions to self-employment generation and economic resources. These objectives fall into three activities that is intended to boost, among them: eco-theater, eco-design and eco-brigades.

In this context, product designers were challenged to develop products based on very simple construction techniques, always reusing objects or materials, and it is up to the residents to give them life. all the money generated by sales revert directly to the residents of bairro do armador involved. clothes’s chair is made ??from some industrial wood wastes and soon it will be possible to buy it here: http://www.projectoremix.com/.
