Old clothes tend to either end up in the charity bin, or in a box at the back of the closet. Artist Tobias Juretzek has been getting resourceful, compressing worn out clothes and turning them into furniture.

The chairs, called Rememberme, aim to transport the stories and expressions preserved in the garments. Casamania is in the midst of manufacturing these chairs, and for a price tag of almost US$900, they should be on the market in September this year.
