Too big to fit inside any office, one contender for the tallest filing cabinet in the world currently resides in Vermont. Built in 2002 by local artist Bren Alvarez, this particular cabinet consists of 38 drawers, with each one representing the number of years of paperwork that Alvarez accumulated while working on the project.
Another construction that aims to be the tallest filing cabinet in the world was built by a man named Samual Yates. This is made up of 60 individual drawers stacked and welded together, and currently holds the spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The structure is a piece of art that the creator named “Untitled (Minuet in MG)”. Yates’ professional website states that: “The seven-story tall sculpture … contains a 1974 MG Midget sportscar that was donated, shredded, steamrolled, photographed, bagged, labeled, numbered, and filed by weight from heaviest to lightest in milligrams (mgs) – an MG in mgs.”
