Department: Man and Activity


A train ticket to Paris, your first shoe, a notebook with curled edges — memories are often evoked by such keepsakes from the past. Memento is a special cabinet for storing these emotionally loaded souvenirs. Put your most precious memories in a box where you can cherish them, remember them and share them forever. The closed boxes are for meaningful objects you want to keep close to you; the transparent boxes are for souvenirs you enjoy sharing with others. There are two secret drawers for your most intimate memories. As time passes, the boxes stack up and a personal archive emerges, as layered as memory itself.
