Antonello Fusé – Coat hangers

29.08.10 § Leave a comment

Found at Designboom, an inventive way to use old chairs for coat hangers inspired by the tradition to hang ones coat on the chairs back.  I am a bit worried about the rest of the chair though, it might have done a better job with its first intended purpose. However, I like the look of it.  The coat hangers are a part of a collection made by resign in Italy who work with re-use of materials and objects in what they call a meta project. More about the details here.

reMade USA is upcycling old leather clothes and scrap into bags and purses. The company is founded by product designer Shannon South “out of the concern with creating yet another product to add to the gazillions already on this planet”. I admire her.

Through re-nest I discovered this Berlin based design company Neue Tische. I like their simplistic style and use of materials, and how cool isn´t this Dominos Table!? Playful and beautiful at the same time.
