This year in Milan, Droog presents Saved by Droog, in which 5135 items saved from liquidation sales were presented to 14 designers as raw materials. The result is 19 new products, each available for immediate purchase in editions dictated by the limitations of the liquidation lot.
For example, according to Droog's brand-new and barely populated blog, designer Eric Klarenbeek produced something from over 200 of the salt shakers pictured below. It's like Supernormal meets Martino Gamper, Droog style.
Participating designers include Atelier Remy & Veenhuizen, Atelier Ted Noten, Ed Annink, Eric Klarenbeek, Erna Einarsdóttir, Luc d'Hanis & Sofie Lachaert, Maison Martin Margiela, Marian Bantjes, Marije Vogelzang, Mieke Gerritzen, Minale-Maeda, Roelof Mulder, Stefan Sagmeister, and Studio Makkink & Bey.
