“Remind me”, a sideboard that reminds you everyday about your belongings.

How many times have we looked for the keys, the cellphone or the wallet before leaving home? And how many times we did not know where they were? We try to help ourselves with notes and crosses upon our hands – we figured out many ways to keep things in mind. Following this premise the students Lisa Merk & Thalea Schmalenberg have developed the project Remind me during a course at the university of Applied Sciences of Muenster, Germany. The goal was to creat a object that has two main functions. They have choosen create a sideboard furniture that reminds you. 


The sideboard »Remind me« preserves us from this daily issue and helps to think about important things before we leave our dwelling. »Remind me« will be found in the hallway of residences where it acts as a storage area for keys, cellphones or purses.


Remind me’s bulb symbolizes a placeholder for intelli-gence, ideas and innovation.


The bulb symbolizes a placeholder for intelli-gence, ideas and innovation. Integrated into this piece of furniture, it serves not only as a lamp, but also acts as a concrete impulse to remember things. A brass bar on the left side of the sideboard gives space for letters. »Remind me« comes with a motion sensor that lights up the bulb on top of the sideboard, when coming close. Because of this, we will be reminded whenever we are about to leave our residence. Even at night »Remind me« can be very helpful finding your way through a dark hallway. If the function of lighting up the bulb is not wished every day, you can turn off this function with a switch.


The sideboard is constructed out of oak and a foot of powder-coated steel and finally finished with brass mounts. It will be produced and sold by BOLIA 2016.
