While in Nürnberg this week, the three of us visited the Neues Museum. I’m not entirely sure what the Neues Museum wants to be.

It made me want to have a Steel Case Flex Perch stool. They’re made from recycled electronic waste, usually unrecyclable, and are fully recyclable themselves. Very Waste Tide, and as a former electronic engineering student it appeals to me. I mailed a Dutch office project firm today, who carry the brand. We explored, saw some interesting things, some old tropes as well, had fun.
