Michael Johansson

Sculptor

Try being this organized

Michael is a Swedish designer building his installations/sculptures out of old suitcases, TV’s, typewriters, and other common vintage equipment. Each block of perfectly flush items, look like scary giant transformers - let’s hope they don’t start moving. Michael uses forklifts, trailers, and even cranes to move these hunks of equipment.

“Vertical Variations”

Suitcases? Boring.

Michael has gone as far as using farming tractors, cars and trailers to fill these massive structures. Combining these with storage crates, Michael needs disassembling teams just to take these down. The third photo is showing his tallest installation to date - 35 feet.

Pack your bags!
