This award winning design helps users find unexpected meaning in mundane objects. Recombining clothes hangers and a steel closet rod, it engages pedestrian artifacts to solve common problems: what to do with extra hangers clogging up a closet, and how to encourage people to hang up their clothes.

By bringing the elements of the closet into the foreground of a person’s daily routine, the Coat Check Chair offers a unique design and a gentle encouragement to stay neat. The hangers’ flexible plastic makes the chair surprisingly comfortable, while its impermanent construction lets users customize in terms of color and pattern. Memorable and practical, the Coat Check Chair has potential for use in gallery openings, home entryways, clothing boutiques, dormitories, and children’s rooms.
