Plastic coat hangers seem like the last place you would find design innovation – or perhaps second-to-last after the closets we put them in. With a twist (and curve) or two, however, these otherwise ordinary and hidden accessories manage to add an animated element to what may be the most boring interior space in a typical home.
Named Dino by their designer Lincoln Kayiwa for obvious reasons, this series of hangers works precisely with the natural repetition of simple hangers. A simple adjustment in height with each consecutive hanger works to create the overall effect of a subtle spine-like curvature when the set is viewed as a whole.
Of course, there are endless effects that could be achieved with this system – there is no rule that indicates they have to go in a particular order. Flexible, functional and fun – not bad at all for what individually would be mistaken for another set of cheap white plastic coat hangers.
