As everyone knows a coat rack has a fixed form, the role of the designer is to define that form within the limits of ensuring the functionality.
Everyone that is except Nils Holger Moormann and Takashi Sato.
Sato’s wonderful “Steckling” destroys this concept by making the hangers – so the hooks – a interchangeable part of the design.
The maple post has three slots through which the hangers can be placed, and that in a wide variety of positions. Through the purchase of additional coat hooks you can extend not only the layout options but also the possible uses and applications.
The extra hooks are not especially cheap, but don’t forget they are an integral part of the design concept, and not a mere functional feature.We’re huge fans of Nils Holger Moormann, for all through his bravery when it comes to choosing designs for his collection, and after our post on his liesmichl we see with Steckling a further strong new addition to the Moormann catalogue.
