In the streets and in the basement of Gromov’s Datcha we mainly found old furniture and chipboard, not the kind of material we prefer to work with. But we found plenty of different colors and types of it, often of a high quality. By sawing the chipboard into standard sizes, the quality of the material became visible again. We designed panels that can be used to make tables, cases, walls, or exposition plinths. We made this bookcase for a special private Soviet book collection, donated to the theatre group that is now working in the dacha. During a one-weekend workshop we had great assistance of a few local designers, woodworkers and students.
