Really shocked at how Deborah Copaken Kogan came to be looking in Richard Roger's sock drawer, I am nevertheless admiring of this description of it!
'I opened Richard Roger's sock drawer and started to cry. It was beautiful. It was perfect. It did not only what a good sock drawer should do - organize socks - it did what great works of art aspire to do. It took the bedlam of everyday life, organized it with careful attention to spatial harmony, color balance, and composition, and transformed it from chaos to order, from ordinary to extraordinary, from a single container for necessities into a perfect expression of the artist's philosophy: minimalism, bright colours, functionality, form. Everything I'd ever admired about the Pompidou was sitting right there in that drawer.'
