If you invested heavily in the cassette format in the 80s and 90s, then you’re probably kicking yourself now that half of your music collection is no longer playable due to the ravages of time and magnetic degradation. That and the fact you left them in the sun during the summer of 1998 and now they stick together a bit.
Well, Dutch designer Patrick Schuur has the solution. It’s a cupboard made of cassettes. Nine-hundred and eighteen of them to be precise. Assuming each is a C90, that means there’s 57 days’ worth of music on his cupboard. No word on whether that includes mixtapes featuring the Lighthouse Family, M-People and Gabrielle.
