Design by Tejo Remy, 1991.
The Rag Chair is serious about recycling. Layered from the contents of 15 bags of rags, the Rag Chair reuses clothes that would otherwise be thrown out. The Rag Chair arrives ready made, no assembly required. Metal strapping is used to anchor the rags in the shape of a chair. Each Rag Chair is unique with the fabric prints and colors used.
The Rag Chair is included in museum collections at Centraal Museum (Utrecht, The Netherlands), Indianapolis Museum (Indianapolis, USA), National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), Audax Textiel Museum (Tilburg, The Netherlands), Neue Pinakothek Die Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum (Munich, Germany), and Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein, Germany).

Tejo Remy works as a product, interior and public space designer together with Rene Veenhuizen in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Considering everything as material, Remy incorporates existing information, circumstances, or found goods into new situations, often bringing in more social contact or, telling the story of a particular place. Remy transforms the familiar, yet the feeling remains. Having collaborated with Droog since its inception with the 1991 classics Chest of drawers, Rag Chair and Milk Bottle Lamps, Remy has reached international acclaim. His commissioners and exhibitors include Museum of Art and Design in New York, Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in New York, MoMA in New York, Stedelijk Musuem in Amsterdam, Museum Boymans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, ACME Gallery in Los Angeles and the Netherlands Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment.View other products by Tejo Remy
