This is what might happen if a trash compactor had impeccable taste and color sensitivity. The work of Michael Johansson is unique and impossible to categorize. You really have to look closely to see how random and unrelated the objects that make up these blocks actually are; yet they still match up perfectly. I can’t imagine how long it must take to source materials and eventually place and align them so precisely. Would be like building a puzzle where each piece was made by a different company and then scattered throughout the world.

Sweet, I love compartmentalization and organization, this takes it to a whole new level. I must say I am a bit jealous and will now begin to reorganize my shelves.

“I can’t imagine how long it must take to source materials and eventually place and align them so precisely. ”
Personally, I think it’d be more like, “Okay, what else can we fit in here, and does anything else fit better?”

I love this stuff, it kinda reminds me of Louise Nevelson’s work. I love her work.

Pretty badass but I couldn’t imagine having a giant brick of stuff just chillin in my house. Unless it served as some piece of functional furniture like a table or something.
The clock stuffed into the bottom of the chair piece is pretty rad though.
