    I am looking for good information about Tejo Remy and his work. Could you please post any useful websites, pages or book references, or upcoming exhibitions in UK. I am currently studying 3D design as part of my foundation course and will be going onto study at Northumbria university next year. I am writing my dissertation on Tejo Remy and the idea of re-inventing superfluous objects and materials that we take for granted on a daily basis… much help would be appreciated. Thank you

    The rag chair has brought hope to those clothes we can’t bear to part.

    The Droog Design lamp is excellent.

    i searched the whole web to find Tejo Remy’s work wrote about in english, i’ve just done a 3D-Design project based on his work and in the end i had to use his website and use a translator. He always uses very litteral names for his work.
