My name is Marie.
I am a hoarder...
All the women in my family are. We're just not very good at getting rid of things.That said, there are some things that I could never throw away. These include photographs, records and even my old cassette tapes. To get rid of music of any kind just seems inherently wrong to me. So although it is highly unlikely that any of my mountain of tapes will ever be played again, they rest peacefully in my loft, secure in my undying love for them.
So I was happy to see that Spanish Product designers OOO share my love of cassette tapes
Using old cassette tapes, simply strapped together, they have created a playful collection of items that would be most welcome in The Palace...
First up the - NOSTALGIC CHAIR £ 86.00
"Elvis Presley, Madonna, ABBA, New Wave Remembering all those artists that we grew up with...
With a walkman attached to its side, Nostalgic Chair pays a tribute to now obsolete medium of cassette tape, which was the first to introduce mobility to music reproduction as well as the first recording medium that permitted us to create our own personalizad mix tapes."
Long live the Tape!
Next up is the CASSETTE TAPES LAMP £ 63.00
This is genius....
It also comes a ceiling light and a floor standing lamp.
CASSETTE TAPES FLOOR LAMP £ 100.00
Lots more lovely ways to give another life to all those lovely cassette tapes.
You can find them all at the glorious Bouf
Bless you OOO
