The curves of the coat hanger aim to convey the movements of the ‘cancan’ dance. The four identical pieces are tied up together with a single leather cord, which creates a visual pattern reminiscent of the corsets used by the dancers. Traditionally ‘cancan’ dancers must be 1,70m in height, which is the same height of the coat hanger.
